Peter In Peril

By Helen Bate
Illustrated by Helen Bate

A moving graphic novel telling the true story of a young boy caught up in the terror of World War II.

Peter is just an ordinary boy, who loves playing football with his friends and eating cake - until war comes to his city and the whole family have to go into hiding. This moving, true story of the Second World War, set in Budapest, Hungary, shows in vivid words and pictures how Peter, his cousin Eva and his mum and dad bravely struggle to survive in a city torn apart by warfare.
