A Northern Childhood: The Balaclava Story And Other Stories

A Northern Childhood: The Balaclava Story And Other Stories - George Layton A quick reading, especially for those interested in Great Britain in its 50s. Good thing that narrator reflects on his actions and realise they were sometimes insane. Short stories for children with morals but with twists as well! Ah, those twists of action! It was fun to read but it's not my type of book and characters. The end comes to soon for me and I have feeling that something is lacking in between. Mum was the best in this book!

I was reading the "New Century Readers" version by Longman. It has an interview with the author, notes for the stories (activities for children) and glossary.
