A beautiful new hardback, illustrated, edition of Julia’s Second World War play for children, gorgeously brought to life by Thomas Docherty’s stunning illustrations.

Perfect for class reading as well as performance.

World War Two has been declared and the Chivers children are sent to the safety of the countryside. They are delighted to be brought back home when it looks like the Germans aren’t going to invade after all. But the air-raid siren goes off and this time it’s frighteningly real.

This dramatic and touching play brings Manchester during the Second World War and its people to life, and provides a variety of opportunities for school classes to explore both historical and literacy topics in an involving and creative setting. Also includes helpful tips on staging and costume.

Illustrator Thomas Docherty is an acclaimed author and illustrator of children’s books including Little Boat, Big Scary Monster and The Driftwood Ball.
