Interesting, if slight, WWII story with a clumsy narrative device 25. Mai 2006
Von Andrea - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The heart of this novel is a sweet story of World War II set in the Devon community of Slapton Sands. It's told from a refreshing, unique perspective of a child on the British home front; this setting is particularly interesting, since it gives a glimpse into the Allies' preparations for D-Day.

Lily, the main character, misses her father, who has gone off to fight. She's also worried about her cat, Tips, who can't be found in time to take her along when the family is evacuated from their home in order to allow for military exercises, as Allied forces prepare for the D-Day landing.

Storylines involving Lily's family taking in a displaced boy from London and befriending two African-American soldiers are handled with subtlety and grace.

Unfortunately, the novel is framed by a modern-day narrative involving Lily's grandson, Michael. The framing piece is clumsy and unnecessary, and seems as though it was added in order to allow the author to tie up some loose ends without significantly lengthening the story. Sadly, it doesn't really work. I'd have much preferred to read more about Lily in the 1940s and less about her in the present.

Try a different Lily, in _Lily's Crossing_, by Patricia Reilly Giff, for a much more sophisticated World War II story of a young girl on the home front who makes an unexpected friendship.

A fascinating and informative story on life during World War II 31. Mai 2006
Von KidsReads - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Michael had been close to his grandmother all of his life. So when she promises to write him a letter while on her mysterious trip, he believes her. Yet when the letter arrives, even Michael finds surprise at her incredible news. To help explain her shocking announcement, Michael's grandmother, Lily, also includes pages from her girlhood journal.

The journal begins on September 10, 1943 when Lily is 12 years old. She lives on a farm in England with her mother, father, grandfather and beloved cat, Tips. The war is tearing the world apart, yet it hasn't affected Lily personally until her father joins the British Military and ships off to who knows where. Then Lily's lack of involvement quickly changes.

A temporary refugee in her school comes to live on the farm with Lily, and she finds that she kind of likes having a little brother. And then Lily meets some soldiers from America and becomes friends with a fellow named Adie. But all too soon the tragedies of war become clear when her teacher's husband is killed in action. And then the war really hits home when Lily's town is forced to evacuate so that the soldiers can practice sea-side landings on the beach. When the day arrives for Lily's family to move down the road to her uncle's farm, Tips disappears!

Lily is devastated. She can't leave behind her best friend, but she must. She swears though that nothing will stop her from looking for her cat --- not even the danger signs, the barbed wire fencing, the soldiers' dogs, or the exploding bombs. She will find Tips no matter what.

THE AMAZING STORY OF ADOLPHUS TIPS is indeed amazing. Mostly written in journal formation, readers get a firsthand and very personal look at World War II from a 12-year-old's point of view. Lily's tears and fears and joys are expertly deployed by the author, Michael Morpurgo. He also adds a bit of humor and adventure, making this story a joy to both genders and any age group.

Wonderful! 23. März 2006
Von Armchair Interviews - Veröffentlicht auf
In 1943, twelve-year-old Lily Tregenza lives on a farm in a seaside village in England. Her father is away fighting in WWII and kids from town are attending her school, but otherwise her life is untouched by the war. One day the villagers are told they have to move completely out of their homes so the area can be used for military training.

Long before Lily is ready, the area is out of bounds as Allied forces practice their landings for D-day, preparing to invade France. But Tips, Lily's adored cat has disappeared. And nothing--barbed-wire fences, nor the danger of guns or bombs, are going to deter Lily. Frantic to find Tips, Lily makes friends with two American soldiers who offer to help...but will Lily ever see her beloved cat again?

Many years later after WWI ended, Michael is reading his grandmother Lily's diary and he learns about the war and about Lily's cat disappearing. He wonders how one cat could still affect their lives sixty years later.

Even though The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips is written for children ages 7-10, I thoroughly enjoyed it and had a hard time keeping my teenagers away from the book long enough for me to finish it. The story is set during WWII and is so realistic I wonder if it might be based on a true story. I couldn't help but relate with Lily as she is desperate to find her beloved pet and as she tries to adjust to the forced changes that the war is making on her family.

I highly recommend The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips, and my only complaint is that it's too short. I would have liked to have read more. Michael Morpurgo is a talented author, able to bring the setting and the characters to life.

Armchair Interviews says: Parents won't go wrong if they pick up this book for their tweeners. It is chocked full of history and fun to read at the same time.

Adolphus Tips 18. März 2013
Von Katherine L. Triboli - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Of the many books I have purchased and read of Michael Morpurgo, this is my favorite. I only have a few reservations about giving this book to children. I purchased the book to give to the Reading Partners organization where I tutor children with reading difficulties. The reservations are because of two things: first in many of Morpurgo's books he has the main charactor using the word hate. To me, that word is nearly as bad as the F word. Also, in this story, as truly happened a great deal in years past, people drowned unwanted kittens. I hesitated to have children read about that. Never-the-less, I did give the book. I would like to hear what some of the children think of it. I like the fact that Morpurgo introduces the reader to other cultures and shows that there is or can be cross-cultural tolerance and caring. Kit T.

wonderful WWII children's book..... 26. September 2008
Von nevina - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A young girl and her family must leave their home in order that the allied forces can use their village as a training area for the D-Day landings. The village is evacuated and surrounded by barbed wire but Mr Tips , the beloved cat, can not be found, will lily try to sneak back in under the wire, what dangers will she and her friends face during this period of time?. Will they ever get to return to their home? This slice of WWII is told through the diary entries of Lily, so works very well as an audio book. It is an interesting, gripping, funny, poignant, and compelling book that adults will enjoy as much as children.
