Description

"The year was 1937 and Hitler had just walked into Austria. It was also a marvellous year for Clouded Yellow butterflies." Wilfred and Duncan live in a large old house in Sussex, only ever see their parents on Wednesdays for lunch, and spend their days catching butterflies and dreaming of adventure. Then their mother elopes and their already distant father takes up with other ladies. Deciding that enough is enough, the brothers run away from home. They already have a plan - to go to London and buy a tram they have seen in an advertisement. It costs two pounds...Lively, funny and charming, THE TWO-POUND TRAM is a bittersweet testament to youth, its dreams and its triumph over adversity.show more
