Flo of the Somme
Following on from the huge success of 'Where The Poppies Now Grow' and 'The Christmas Truce', 'Flo Of The Somme' pays tribute to the remarkable bravery of the animals who risked their lives during World War 1. Mercy dog 'Flo' has more to contend with than racing across dangerous battlefields. Can she reach the injured in time with her first aid kit, and can she lead stretcher bearer, Ray, to the stricken. Poignant, poetic text, sensitively written for a young audience with rich illustrations that detail significant landmarks of a battle which is recognised as one of the costliest engagements of World War 1.
