Don't You Know There's a War On?by James Stevenson
"Seen through the eyes of a young boy, these [are] strikingly faithful memories of the home front during World War II....The boy wants to help win the war; he collects tin foil and tin cans, buys war stamps, and plants a victory garden....But anxious times to come, too. His father goes into the army, and the boy misses him terribly....Stevenson is adept at presenting the unsettling mixture of the humorous, the day-to-day, and the serious moments....A splendid evocation of the past; a wonderful book....for everyone to share."Horn Book.
