A Pennyworth of Peppermints is a spy story for 8-11s, 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 adventures, the boys, along with Sidney's twin 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 it that it said that Jesus is always with me." - Joseph (8)"This story is epic . . . it helped me understand what life was like as a child in the First World War, and reminded me that God is interested in helping us through tough times." - Florence
