Children's LiteratureAlthough this story purportedly takes place in England, it is an England that we pray we'll never see. A mysterious THEY have somehow taken over, and normal life simply does not exist any more. The upper classes have become so removed from their servants that neither considers the other really human. Only THEY are permitted to use cars, guns, electricity and other trappings of modern life. The only problem for the reader is that THEY never appear. THEIR orders are carried out by human slaves, THEIR factories are manned by demoralized human workers, and the supervisors are even more inhumane than their invisible bosses. It's a little too real. 2003, Lion Publishing, Ages 13 up.
