The Pompey Hollow Book Club
Jerome Mark Antil, author
This is the beginning of the series. Jerry is a city boy who moves to the country following the War. His new friends - nine and ten year old kids who spent half of their lives in WWII - create a club of valor - catching thieves who are breaking into local businesses - and saving poultry from the Thanksgiving table. Lighthearted nostalgia of what it was like growing up in the shadow of WWII.
