A Pennyworth of Peppermints is a spy story for 8-11s, set in the First World War.
While collecting driftwood on their local beach in Dorset, Ben and Sidney find a message in a bottle washed up on the shore. The message is written in rhyme - is it just a poem? Through a series of adventures, the boys, along with Sidney's twin sister, Vera, discover that there is much more to the message than meets the eye....
This delightful story captures a little of what life was like for families living through the Great War, and how faith in God can make a difference, whatever the circumstances.
