Review:
On the edge of 1943, the Brits had been slugging it out against the Nazis on their own for too long. Help is on the way from America; more soldiers and airmen will lend a hand.

In fact, twelve year-old Lily’s village is being evacuated so that the Allies’ pilots can practice their landings. It is a difficult time for everyone, including Lily’s cat Tips. He can’t be found. Lily is bereft. Two somewhat stereotypical Yanks form a quite nice friendship with Lily and the search goes forward.
