Private Peaceful (Paperback)

Michael Morpurgo

-   11 years +

Michael Morpurgo's novel, Private Peaceful, swoops the reader's emotions up and down in this stirring story of a soldier caught up in the horrors of the First World War.

Although the story takes place in the space of just one night, there's a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows in store as Tommo recounts anecdotes from his childhood and relives nightmare experiences of fighting in the trenches.

Private Peaceful won the Red House Children's Book Award and is an essential read for children aged nine and above who are learning about the First World War and how it affected ordinary lives.
