For Sally, life in war-time Montreal means small inconveniences. But when asked to bring a favourite gift from home to send to children in the Blitz, the war becomes real.

Sally's emotions as she wrestles with her impetuous decision are nicely supported by the subdued watercolor drawings that portray the Canadian scenes and the black-and-white pencil drawings that depict war-time England."  School Library Journal
