Jack's family is based on Rottnest Island during WWII while his father helps build an airfield. Jack and his best friend Banjo have the run of the island and a remarkable knack for getting into trouble — but as Jack says, 'I'm not that bad, I just get caught a lot!' Dafty, a simple but loveable young boy, dotes on Banjo and Jack. When Dafty seeks revenge against the local schoolmaster for a punishment inflicted on Banjo, life suddenly becomes more serious. This poignant, multi-layered text offers young readers a valuable insight into life in Australia during the war.
Very lovey as It is Western Australia location set and it is mostly true but somethings are not true but it's shows WAs effort in the war. Best damn story I’ve ever read and it’s funny.
Good story and EARTHWORM SALLY
It was the best book I ever read and I have read a lot
