 Thomas Peaceful is re-telling the story of his life as every second goes by. It starts from his childhood up to the battlefields of the World War, along with his brother, Charlie Peaceful. Tommo also has a brother called Big Joe who can get up to all sorts of funny mischief. Oh, and how could I forget this character: Molly. She is a very likeable girl between Thomas and Charlie and the 3 of them spend their childhood coming back from school, blowing raspberries, and that sort of stuff. Mrs. Peaceful ( Charlie and Thomas' mother) is a very kind widow. I forgot to tell you that Thomas was along with his father when a tree was about to fall on him, but his father saved him, risking his own life.

 I enjoyed reading this book but it was so emotional that it made me cry. It is also very humourous in certain places, that make your stomach ache after laughing too much! Although do keep in mind that children under 8 will possibly not understand SOME parts in the book and get confused. I would recommend this book for years 4, 5, 6 and onwards. I rate this book 9.8/10 because I thought that it was a great book but could be improved a tiny tiny bit. But that doesn't mean that you can think that: ' If it's not 10/10 I'm not gonna read it' . This book is really good and even adults can read it so everyone out there, tell your parents to read, ' Private Peaceful ' After YOU have read it FIRST!
