On the Wings of Heroes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Davy Bowmans dad looks forward to Halloween more than a kid, and Davys brother, Bill, flies B-17s. Davy adores these two heroes and tries his best to follow their lead, especially now. World War II has invaded Davys homefront boyhood. Bill has joined up, breaking their dads heart. Its an intense, confusing time, and one that will spur Davy to grow up in a hurry. This is one of Richard Pecks finest novels—a tender, unforgettable portrait of the World War II home front and a familys enduring love.

Synopsis:

In his 30th novel for young adults, Newbery Medalist Peck delivers a tender, poignant, and unforgettable story about a young boy growing up on the homefront during World War II.

Synopsis:

A thrilling, action-packed story of heroism and perserverance of the Norwegian resistance during WWII.

Synopsis:

The year is 1942, and Norway is under Nazi occupation. Despite her grandfathers

warnings, twelve-year-old Marit has decided to take action. Through her eyes, readers

experience the untold story of Norwegians resistance and their response to the arrest

of schoolteachers for their refusal to teach Nazi propaganda to Norwegian schoolchildren.

Set on an island of fishing trawlers, this novel is about risks taken, secrets kept,

and questions about whom to trust.
