From the first sighting of the tramp on his bicycle to the discovery of the German spy's hideout, this story takes you through the really scary times of World War II as seen through the eyes of a seven year old boy.This tale of a small country boy winds through the one room school, down by the cotton patch, along side the road house and finally to the huge Oxford Elementary School in town.The heart warming encounter with the soldiers will make everybody want to become a soldier.The Night-Marshal is like every ones grand-father and his protective care give the reader a warm fuzzy feeling and carries the story directly to the exit.
