Description
When England doused its lights in 1939 to prevent German bombers from finding targets, families moved into cramped air-raid shelters to spend the evening, and a desperate need arose for entertainment and distraction. Hence little books like this, a collection of games, puzzles, conjuring tricks, brainteasers, simple activities, literary snippets, jokes, and cartoons. Now perhaps more suitable to camping and travel, as well as nights at home when the power goes out, Evelyn August's collection is packed with tidbits of popular British culture of the 1940s, as well as hundreds of activities that are just as entertaining today as they were 70 years ago.
