Product Details


Millard and Lesnie, Australians, present a picture book about the Great War with beautiful, green-dominated watercolors and a spare text with occasional end rhymes. … It is done with truth and tenderness. … Taken together, the folkloric simplicity of the text and the quiet beauty of the illustrations pack a powerful punch for those families that want—or need—to confront wartime violence with their little ones.
—Kirkus Reviews

Lyrical… This story has the potential to be maudlin, but the skillfull writing and carefully constructed watercolors richly transform it. … It is one worthy of purchase where stories of war and moving on are needed.
—School Library Journal
