English KS2: Carrie's War by Nina Bawden

Listen to Nina Bawden's classic World War 2 story of children evacuated from London to Wales.

Carrie and her younger brother Nick are evacuated to Wales to spend the war years with the dour Mr Evans and his sister 'Auntie' Lou. Carrie and Nick spend much of their time at Druid's Bottom - a mysterious house where Hepzibah, the housekeeper, tells them strange stories about skulls and curses. Carrie and Nick settle into their new lives...and then Carrie does something she’ll regret for years to come.
