War Is Over

From David Almond, the bestselling, award-winning author of Skellig, comes a vivid and moving story, beautifully illustrated by David Litchfield, which commemorates the hundred-year anniversary of the end of the First World War.

“I am just a child,” says John. “How can I?be at war?”

It’s 1918, and war is everywhere. John’s dad is fighting in the trenches far away in France. His mum works in the munitions factory just along the road. His teacher says that John is fighting, too, that he is at war with enemy children in Germany.

One day, in the wild woods outside town, John has an impossible moment: a meeting with a German boy named Jan. John catches a glimpse of a better world, in which children like Jan and himself can come together, and scatter the seeds of peace.

This book is most suitable for children aged 7 – 11.
