9780099582861: The Wind on the Moon

'I have often wondered what I would be when I grow up, but never, never, never did I expect to be a Kangaroo!' When the wind on the moon blew straight into Dinah and Dorinda's hearts it meant that they couldn't help but behave badly for a whole year. Transformed into kangaroos, they terrorise the sleepy town of Midmeddlecum with glee. But what they didn't count on was being locked in a zoo. Things get even stickier for the mischievous sisters when they learn their father has been imprisoned in a dungeon by Count Hulagu Bloot, the tyrant of Bombardy. Their poor father! Can they rescue him in time? It includes exclusive material: in the Backstory you can find out what life was like when this book was written and meet some more naughty children! Vintage Children's Classics is a twenty-first century classics list aimed at 8-12 year olds and the adults in their lives. You can discover timeless favourites from The Jungle Book and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to modern classics such as The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

About the Author:

Eric Linklater was born in the Orkney Islands in the north of Scotland. He fought in the First World War and became a war reporter during the Second World War and the Korean War. The Wind on the Moon began as a story Linklater told his two daughters when they were caught in the rain on a walk. The book later won the Carnegie Medal.

Review:

"The Wind on the Moon is a wartime book - it was published in 1944 - and it dwells on those elements of life in short supply or under threat in Britain, such as food, and liberty, and fun. It is not a prisoner of the time, though, and one of its delights is the cavalier way in which Linklater swings between pure fantasy and the everyday made fantastic" -- James Meek Guardian "Hand it to your youngest and he will undoubtedly be highly entertained by the saga of Dinah and Dorinda and their misdeeds; give it to your best friend and he will be entertained by the delicate satire on every page" The Boston Globe
