A heart-warming tale of courage and warmth, set against the backdrop of the second world war, about an abandoned village, a lifelong friendship and one very adventurous cat! 'Classic Morpurgo brilliance' - Publishing News "Something's up. Something big too, very big. At school, in the village, whoever you meet, it's all anyone talks about. It's like a sudden curse has come down on us all. It makes me wonder if we'll ever see the sun again." It's 1943, and Lily Tregenze lives on a farm, in the idyllic seaside village of Slapton. Apart from her father being away, and the 'townie' evacuees at school, her life is scarcely touched by the war. Until one day, Lily and her family, along with 3000 other villagers, are told to move out of their homes - lock, stock and barrel. Soon, the whole area is out of bounds, as the Allied forces practise their landings for D-day, preparing to invade France. But Tips, Lily's adored cat, has other ideas - barbed wire and keep-out signs mean nothing to her, nor does the danger of guns and bombs. Frantic to find her, Lily makes friends with two young American soldiers, who promise to help her. But will she ever see her cat again? Lily decides to cross the wire into the danger zone to look for Tips herself...Now, many years later, as Michael is reading his Grandma Lily's diary, he learns about The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips - and wonders how one adventurous cat could still affect their lives sixty years later.

Before the first farm opened 22 years ago, Morpurgo was a teacher and his knowledge of children's experiences, plus his experience of farms enrich his writing enormously. He has won the Whitbread Children's Book Award, the Red House Children's Book Award, the Carnedie Medal and the Smarties Book Prize.

    Again if Squarespace's Personal plan's bandwidth limit of 500 GB isn't sufficient, you can always upgrade to their Professional or Business plan. This usually means you're getting a ton of traffic / website interaction which is a good thing!

      I have to agree with Michael here. Yes you can go on Treehouse and learn a lot of skills and you can be exceptionally skilled when you are done. Unfortunately, your friends nephew did the same thing and has the same skills so you are competing with him and everyone else for clients. What is happening is that the world is being flooded with people who wield the knowledge of how to use technology but not the whyЙ Thus you have a million zany start-ups crashing and burning each year.I'm not saying traditional college is the only answer, god knows the students can bomb out anywhere, but at least they are exposed to more than just technology. So when it comes time to build their first startup they know a little about other things and can build solutions that have some positive societal impact.

      If you want to do your own, I would look at something based on WordPress, or weebly.com

    It's really hard to say which of them have a faster loading speed, as it fluctuates from time to time.
