Charlie’s Promise @aldhammer #BookEvent #Scotland @cranachanbooks #PrestonpansMiningMuseum

Part two of my Monday (05/06/1) was spent at the Prestonpans Mining Museum, where Annemarie Allan was taking P7 pupils from Sanderson’s Wynd Primary School on an adventure trail. Showing where she got her inspiration for the book Charlie’s Promise. We were very lucky to see inside the Beam House which is normally closed. It was a lovely sunny day, the kids were laughing and full of questions and in awe of Annemarie.

Here are some photographs from the day.

Would you break the rules or break your promise? On the outskirts of Edinburgh, just before the outbreak of WW2, Charlie finds a starving German boy called Josef hiding in the woods near his home. Josef can’t speak English and is desperately afraid, especially of anyone in uniform. Charlie promises to help Josef find his Jewish relatives in the city. It’s a journey that will force them to face their fears, testing their new-found friendship, and Charlie’s promise, to the limit. ‘Poignant, graceful, and relevant for today’ Alex Nye
