This is a surprisingly funny book, with appeal to almost any reader, as opposed to only WWII enthusiasts. The author places us smack in the middle of Davy's world, blending his every-day concerns with details about life at home during the war. The book offers a number of interesting discussion opportunities about topics including community obligations, justice, playing fair, and relationships between generations, and how those issues are viewed by readers in a modern context.
The best discussion questions, of course, are generated by and contemplated by readers. These questions are designed to avoid major spoilers about the book, and to provide a starting point for teachers, parents, and student reading groups.
