Once There Were Lions

By Roger Hurn

It is 1939 and a gang of children who call themselves “The Lions” play happily in the back streets of London. They are totally unaware that their little world is about to be shattered beyond repair. War is declared and they, like thousands of others, are torn from their families and sent off to live with strangers in the countryside. This is their story.



Roger Hurn has had over 70 books for children published. He is well known for his author visits to schools and has enormous experience as an educator having taught at all levels from Nursery to Higher Education. His experience led to him being a consultant advisor to the UK Home Office and the Children’s Directorate. In his spare time Roger plays seven-a-side football and, to the horror of music lovers everywhere, guitar in a rock band.
