Publisher Description

The Great Escape is a gripping and heartwarming story for 9+ readers about three pets who are separately from their beloved owners in Second World War London, fleeing to the countryside to survive.

Perfect for fans of Michael Morpurgo's War Horse and Lauren St John.

BUSTER is a lively Jack Russell
TIGER is a feisty white and ginger tom
ROSE is a faithful Collie

Robert and Lucy Edwards love their pets more than anything; but the threat of the Second World War forces them to flee to Devon - leaving their animals behind. And as the air raid sirens sound over London, the frightened animals are sent to be put down.

Buster, Tiger and Rose make a daring escape but with danger at every turn, can the trio make it across the country as it prepares for battle - and cheat death for the second time?
