Stories of the First World War from the bestselling Terry Deary, author of the hugely successful Horrible Histories.

November 1916 - the war on the Home Front. Minnie is being told off for breaching the blackout when a Zeppelin airship crashes over Essex.

Minnie, the local constable and an elderly helper must round up the armed German crew before they escape. Meanwhile the 'invaders' are worrying about accidentally setting fire to the houses they were bombing! A strange but true tale of the Home Front for 8+ from the master historical storyteller.

Parents in Touch

'Great read for age eight and upwards.'
Irish Examiner

'It's just the thing to interest both girls and boys of nine up in what was happening on the Home Front. Recommended.'
