    5. I have to admit to only reading half this book I was reading it to my sons The pictures are beautiful by the way But then I wanted them to hear the song, so found it on Youtube and the listened to it They were very moved by the song and I asked them if they wanted me to read the rest of the book No, it is too sad they said and then they had a few questions about war, ANZAC Day and The end is just so harrowing, as he says there are somethings worse than dying.

    6. When I saw this book I had to get it By combining the lyrics with illustrations it is a very inventive way to introduce some darker themes to readers It isn t violent or graphic in any way, but the themes of war and loss and dying are very obvious.The artwork is very stark, with a limited colour palette, that adds a sense of age and weight to the meaning conveyed.Super fast to get through, and though it may not be to everyone s taste, I d recommend you try it.
