A story told completely in dialogue, this picture book is about a young Australian soldier in the battle of the Somme. Walking through the fields away from the front, he finds what he thinks is a stray dog, and decides to adopt it as a mascot for his company. Then he meets Jacque...s, the homeless orphan boy who owns the dog. The soldier realises that Jacques needs the dog more - and perhaps needs his help as well. With stunning illustrations from Phil Lesnie, this is a deeply moving celebration of humanity in the midst of the brutality of war. A SOLDIER, A DOG AND A BOY was inspired by Libby Hathorn's months of research on her uncle Maurice, who survived Gallipoli but went on to fight at the Battle of the Somme and was killed in there in 1917 at just twenty years old.
