Reader's note

This wonderful book is the story of two boys and the friendship which flowered between them during the early days of the last world war - Pat and John, both knew the risks they were running, yet took a boat to help save the stranded British army from Dunkirk. It is not a true story, but it could have been true for there really were children who helped ferry the British army in retreat. It is also truthful in another sense: when real people take risks, they really get killed. It is a harrowing tale with a strong message to send to readers aged 10 and over. This makes it no less worth your time, The Dolphin Crossing is a fine addition to any Puffin or Penguin collection.
