Annotation

On Anzac Day 1915, Australian soldiers defended the French village of Villers-Bretonneaux, but lost 1,300 lives. After the village was reconstructed, Australian school children sent funds to rebuild the school. This picture book features two girls chasing a red poppy petal through memorial sites. Historical notes and endpaper maps add depth and interest.
