This is a charming children's story that will interest adults and children alike. With beautiful illustrations, the story tells how a park bench in London's Berkeley Square was named for an American soldier stationed there during World War II.

A well written and finely illustrated book. War can be such a sensitive topic for children and this book does a great job of gently introducing a new generation to the second world war

What a great story! And the illustrations are really something to admire. Mr. Cutler's use of colors to fill each page gives this book a unique facade; the look is eye-catching. Young children will enjoy having this story read to them by an adult, and children of reading age will do well on their own. The story unravels quickly, but leaves enough hanging on each page that will ask children for more.

This story teaches children just a bit about World War II, and the important role Americans had in Great Britain. I learned something myself about parks in Great Britain.

The illustrator and author make a great team. We are looking forward to their next collaboration.

A great children's book. It builds appreciation for parks and history in a fun way. The illustrations are fantastic and the story has just the right amount of suspense to keep children longing for the next page. It's now one my daughters favorite books to read before bedtime. A real joy.
