"Nab End" meets "Our Kid" meets "Bread" in this nostalgic, funny and poignant account of growing up in Liverpool during the Second World War. Meet Tom Kipper, Espionage Agent Extraordinaire. Born into a poor Irish family in Liverpool in 1928, Tom Kipper is ten years old and full of mischief. A pupil at Saint Joseph's Academy of Hard Knocks (as the kids call it), he spends his days dodging Spiderlady McCann's vicious pencil and engaging in a good scrap when school's out. But the arrival of war will shake Tom's world, bringing loss, confusion and further adventure!
