Five Children On The Western Front

The  third sequel to Five Children And It, Five Children On The Western Front was absolutely beautiful. This book, more than touching my heart, pressed hard against it. Set during the First World War,  Five Children On The Western Front maps how Cyril, Anthea, Robert, and Jane grow up, and how they all helped with the war effort. I loved this book, although I missed IT’s wishing, and it felt like the author had just walked out of a primary-school History lesson- it felt like she had done barely any research. However, It was still a great book. I recommend this book to anyone who likes Five Children And It, war stories, fantasy, and, towards the end, romance and tragedy- although read  Five Children And It, The Story of The Amulet, and, if possible, The Phoenix And The Carpet first; otherwise it won’t make sense.
