Abstract:

Ten-year-old Peggy lives in London in the dark days at the end of the Second World War with her Mum and brother Tommy. One morning, a Doodlebug (the cheerful nickname for a German rocket bomb) lands on their house, destroying everything except the clothes on their back and Tommy's pram. This includes, (or so it seems) an old biscuit tin that contains letters from her father. With no home, Peggy has to leave the school she knows and loves and move in with her grandfather, who seems grumpy about having them there. Over time, with the help of a boy called Spud, a sausage dinner, a sinking Christmas pudding, writing letters to her father and manifold adventures with the pram, Peggy begins to learn that 'home' is so much more than a house.
