Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones

What a wonderful and sad book dealing with wartime, being students and becoming totally enthralled by your teacher's rendition of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens and differences between people such as color, breeding and the horror that happens during war. It was such a visual novel, I loved Matilda, Mr. Watts and the simplicity of how they lived and hated what happened to all of them during this time. A Reading Olympic book for this year and I can't wait to see what the students say as they read and after they read this book.
