A Pennyworth of Peppermints
By Mary Weeks Millard
For 8 to 11s / 160 pages
Spy mystery story 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 thrilling adventures, the boys, along with Sidney’s 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.
“Cool, interesting, exciting . . . this is a great book! I liked it that the children were detectives! I liked that it said that Jesus is always with me.” – Joseph
