This one just grabs you. It doesn't matter how many times you read it (and you should read it every year around Remembrance Day), you'll get a lump in your throat every time.

Excellent book , exceptional story.
This story honors those who have put their own lives on the line in a country far from home. Great to read anytime but especially for Remembrance Day . Touching book and wonderfully illustrated.

A beautiful book in every sense. Sure to become a Remembrance Day classic.
