    It is 1940. France has fallen, and only a narrow strip of sea lies between Great Britain and invasion. The war could go either way, and everyone must do their bit. Young copywriter Catrin Cole is drafted into the Ministry of Information to help write women into propaganda films - something that the men aren't very good at. She is quickly seconded to the ministry's latest endeavor: a heartwarming tale of bravery and rescue at Dunkirk. It's all completely fabricated, of course, but what does that matter when the nation's morale is at stake?

    You're called Fidge, and you're nearly 11. You've been hurled into a strange world. You have three companions: two are unbelievably weird, and the third is your awful cousin Graham. You have to solve a series of nearly impossible clues. You need to deal with a cruel dictator and 3,000 Wimbley Woos (yes, you read that sentence correctly). And the whole situation - the whole, entire thing - is your fault. Wed Wabbit is an adventure story about friendship, danger and the terror of never being able to get back home again. And it's funny. It's seriously funny.

    When Noel Bostock - aged 10, no family - is evacuated from London to escape the Nazi bombardment, he lands in a suburb northwest of the city with Vera Sedge - a 36-year-old widow drowning in debts and dependents. Always desperate for money, she's unscrupulous about how she gets it. Noel's mourning his godmother, Mattie, a former suffragette. Wise beyond his years, raised with a disdain for authority and an eclectic attitude toward education, he has little in common with other children and even less with the impulsive Vee.

    Nichts im Leben von Vera Sedge verläuft nach Plan. Die 36-Jährige stolpert von einem selbstverursachten Drama ins nächste. Vee ist notorisch pleite, und es ist ihr egal, wenn sie auch mal krumme Wege geht. Dann humpelt der zehnjährige Noel in ihr Leben. Er ist mit der Kinderlandverschickung ins St. Albans gekommen. Hochbegabt, altklug und ganz anders als alle Menschen, die Vee bisher kennengelernt hat, bringt er sie auf eine brillante Idee. Doch es sind Noels kühler Kopf und sein großes Herz, die aus der Idee erst einen Geldsegen machen.
