Comment

Newest from the Kiwis at War series for junior and young adult readers. Designed to weave true accounts with fictitious characters to give an emotive, realistic account of a remarkable time in history. Not to ‘glorify’ war but to aid in our understanding and remember an horrific time in world history. Private Henry Hunt is based on the author’s own uncle who served for two years in active service. “Four Christmases had passed since the world went to war in 1914. Struggling to survive in the trenches, close to enemy lines, amid the terror of gunfire and the whine of warplanes. Kiwi soldier Henry Hunt finds a little dog that is a great comfort to his fellow soldiers on the battlefields of France. The dog is also a great ‘ratter’ and together it is set in Henry’s mind that they could possibly survive this war.” Perfect timing as we commemorate ANZAC day.
