Avatar for Emily Lloyd Emily Lloyd said:
Part of me wants to call this a "good, old-fashioned boys' novel"--but I'm neither a boy, nor particularly old-fashioned, and I loved it. Story of a boy who's shipped from London to live in the country while his father, a toymaker, fights in WWI...this father carves the boy soldiers & sends them to him from the trenches--and slowly the soldiers get more and more realistic (one's face is contorted in a scream of pain, for ex.), and less fun to play with.
