After the trouble starts and the soldiers arrive on Matildaa€™s island, only one white person stays behind. Mr. Watts, whom the kids call Pop Eye, wears a red nose and pulls his wife around on a trolley, and he steps in to teach the children when there is no one else. His only lessons consist of reading from his battered copy of Great Expectations, a book by his friend Mr. Dickens. For Matilda, Dickensa€™s hero Pip becomes as real to her as her own mother, and the greatest friendship of her life has begun. Soon Mr. Wattsa€™s book begins to inflame the childrena€™s imaginations with dreams about Dickensa€™s London and the larger world. But how will they answer when the soldiers demand to know: where is this man named Pip? Set against the stunning beauty of Bougainville in the South Pacific during the civil war in the early 1990s, Lloyd Jonesa€™s breathtaking novel shows what magic a childa€™s imagination makes possible even in the face of terrible violence and what power stories have to fuel the imagination.
