Product description

Robert and Lucy Edwards love their pets more than anything. But as air raid sirens sound over London, they are forced to flee to Devon – leaving their animals behind. The threat of the Second World War has intensified, and the three frightened animals are sent to be put down. Buster is a lively Jack Russell, Rose is a faithful Collie, and there’s also a cat: Tiger, a feisty white-and-ginger tom. Together, the plucky pets make a daring escape, but they soon find danger at every turn. Can the trio make it across the country as it prepares for battle, and cheat death for the second time? The epic dangers of war make a stunning backdrop for this story of courage, loyalty and a journey that will never be forgotten.
