Jonnie Shiny Shoes by Jonathan L Smith
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Jonnie was only six years old when he and his younger sister Connie were evacuated from Hartlepool to Lasingham in the Yorkshire Dales, at the start of World War II. In this frank and heartfelt story, told through the eyes of a young boy who knows nothing of the politics and foreign affairs of the time, the reader is given a glimpse of what life was like for all those children who were separated from their parents and sent to live with strangers in order to escape the Blitz. Jonnie Shiny Shoes is the story of one young boy's struggle to fit in and grow up in a place completely alien to him. Here he learns to take responsibility for his younger siblings and overcome the hurdles with childlike resilience; his story will not fail to warm anyone's heart.
