The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips is a very moving story with a happy ending. It is set in the South Coast at the start of 1944 when villages were evacuated because American troops wanted space to practise for the D-Day.

The heroine is twelve-year-old Lily Tregenze. Her world changes when she has to move off the farm where she lives, because the Americans are coming. Tips the cat disappears, so much of the book is the search for Tips.

Like all Michael Morpurgo's books, this is a moving, gripping story, and is well researched. It's also a 'feel-good' book for adults, highly recommended.
