Tom Kipper by Peter Sale
Book DescriptionAt the tender age of fourteen, loveable rogue Tom Kipper is thrust from the schoolroom of St Joseph's Academy of Hard Knocks into the adult world of work. Armed with advice from his God-fearing Irish mother, he soon finds himself working as an office boy in the heart of Liverpool. With the Blitz at its height, life in the city is full of adventure. There are air raids to be watched, with action as spectacular as the movies, from a ringside seat on the office roof. And there's money to be made - Tom's mate Flannery promises he'll make a fortune if he sells his homemade hair cream. But what will Ma say when she sees Tom's been arrested as a Nazi undercover agent?

Author Biography - Peter Sale
Peter Sale was born in Liverpool to an Irish family and received his education at Saint Joseph's Academy of Hard Knocks. He left school at fourteen, ready for adventure, and, after ducking bombs with the American Red Cross in London, chasing Nazis in Hamburg, training with the New Zealand Air Force, writing country music in Nashville and appearing in Hollywood TV commercials, he settled down to write about his childhood memories. Peter now lives with his wife Carmelisa in a town called Paradise, California, where he is at work on his second Tom Kipper novel. TOM KIPPER'S SCHOOLDAYS was originally self-published in the USA under the title, A RIVER OF SCOUSE.
