The House on Falling Star Hill. Great book with another great map.
Plain on the outside...
Blitzed Brits by Terry Deary. The Blitz is big in British museums right now, which also means the Blitz (and hoards of fallout shelter paraphernalia purchased from ebay) is big with my mom. We have nearly every book in the 'Horrible Histories' collection. All well written, and peppered with illustrations and cheeky jokes as shown below.
