There is no stopping the disobedient Dinah and Dorinda in this delightful Carnegie Winning novel

About the Author

Eric Linklater was born in the Orkney Islands in the north of Scotland. He fought in the First World War and became a war reporter during the Second World War and the Korean War. The Wind on the Moon began as a story Linklater told his two daughters when they were caught in the rain on a walk. The book later won the Carnegie Medal.

Reviews

The Wind on the Moon is a wartime book - it was published in 1944 - and it dwells on those elements of life in short supply or under threat in Britain, such as food, and liberty, and fun. It is not a prisoner of the time, though, and one of its delights is the cavalier way in which Linklater swings between pure fantasy and the everyday made fantastic -- James Meek * Guardian *
Hand it to your youngest and he will undoubtedly be highly entertained by the saga of Dinah and Dorinda and their misdeeds; give it to your best friend and he will be entertained by the delicate satire on every page * The Boston Globe *
