You’ll meet some well-known animals, such as Murphy the donkey, who carried the wounded in Gallipoli, and Caesar the Red Cross Dog. But also included are the hard-working horses, camels and mules, and the dogs that barked a warning when enemy planes were approaching, as well as the mischievous monkeys that had the men laughing.

ANZAC Animals has been extensively researched by author Maria Gill and beautifully illustrated by Marco Ivancic – the winning team (including the wonderful team at Scholastic and Luke Kelly the designer) of the 2016 Margaret Mahy Book of the Year, Anzac Heroes.
