A stunning novel about friendship, war, and one girl's bravery which changes her life forever. It's 1943, and twelve-year-old Lily Tregenza lives on a farm in an idyllic seaside village in England. Apart from her father being away and the "townie" evacuees at school, her life is scarcely touched by the war . . . until Lily and her family, along with 3,000 other villagers, are ordered to evacuate their homes to allow the Allied forces to practice their landings for D-day. It's a dangerous operation--guns firing and bombs exploding--and the whole area is off-limits. But Adolphus Tips, Lily's adored cat, has other ideas--barbed wire and "Keep out!" signs mean nothing to her. Tips (cont'd)

Imagine being told to leave your home... Imagine American soldiers occupying your house and land... Imagine being twelve and angry, with only a cat to tell your secrets to... Well it all happened (most of it anyway) in Slapton Sands, Devon, in 1944. Based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips, 946 explodes everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings, using music, puppetry and foolishness to tell this tale of war, prejudice and love. Tender, political and surprisingly romantic, this story speaks to us all and finally reveals the secrets the US and British governments tried to keep quiet.

A ‘cathartic’ autobiography for anyone who has been through the pain associated with caring for a loved one suffering from motor neurone disease and dementia. Over 850,000 people suffer from dementia in the UK today. A brutally honest story of love, pain and loss. “I want your balls in a sandwich” were the last intelligible words that Peter Kaye’s wife Bet said to him. Sadly they were delivered with, seemingly, the same degree of venom and hatred that had come to epitomise their last two years together, and sum up the vindictiveness that is so often a result of dementia. This book is about those two years, but is also the fifty year love story that preceded those final years of losing the person you love most. The author explains what it is like being a carer, and of what happens to someone after that role, which has dominated your life for so long, has come to an end. Peter Kaye’s autobiography of caring for his wife is a story full of the pain that comes with this horrific disease, but it is also a story of love, and humour and the positives in life that he has found from this time.
