GUEST REVIEWER: KIERAN Yr 7
This was a sad and interesting book to read. I was intrigued by learning about World War II and its effect on children's lives. It gave me a better understanding of the impact of war.
I really liked one of the main characters called Dobbs, who stood up for people being bullied and harassed.
I would recommend "Vinnie's War" to children aged 12 - 14 who are interested in stories set during the war.
Very helpful teachers' notes here and some reviews from teachers around Australia here.
