The Bakehouse

By Joy Cowley

An Atonement for children—one of New Zealand’s best loved children’s writers tells a morally complex story with a powerful ending.

Bert wants nothing more than to be old enough to fight in the war— to handle weapons, defend his country, and have a life filled with adventure. Little does he know that the secrets and danger of war don’t always stay at the front line, and that one boy’s actions can change everything.

  • Vivid, layered, complex characters
  • A warm and powerful war story set not in a war zone but in suburban New Zealand
  • An author with a wide and loyal following in the public, school, and library sectors
