It is not surprising to discover that the author runs his own film and video company. This is a slight story of a wartime child dreaming while spending a blitz night in the London Underground. What is impressive is the illustrations. Stylish camera angles, close-ups and lighting create an impressive book. It is a pity the story line is not stronger (although the kidnap of one of the raries --- anthropomorphic furries --- by a goose-stepping Vermin Rat sounds strong enough!). A delight for period detail and a good stimulus for discussion --- this will attract attention right through the junior school.
