The Valley of Lost Secrets
Author: Lesley Parr

Reading age: Year 5+
Summary: A brilliantly told story of two young brothers being evacuated from London to a small village in Wales. The eldest of the brothers, Jimmy, dislikes everything about Wales – its green, quiet and full of strangers and he instantly feels out of place and like he doesn’t belong there. Jimmy then finds a skull hidden in a tree and begins to find the valley that little bit more interesting, intriguing and more frightening… But Jimmy is struggling to trust anyone and doesn’t know who to let in on his secret discovery. He finds an unexpected ally and they uncover secrets that will change them and the valley forever.


– A beautiful story where Jimmy learns a lot about himself and who his real friends are.

– Brilliant humour throughout.

– The element of mystery adds another dimension to the story.

– Shows the feelings of children moving from the city to the countryside as evacuees and how some will have found it to be a shocking and uncomfortable change.

Star rating: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️  4/5
