Jim’s Letters


This is a hard cover book by the award winning duo – author Glyn Harper, and illustrator Jenny Cooper. (‘Roly, the Anzac Donkey’, ‘Le Quesnoy,’ and ‘Gladys goes to War’).

SKU: 1089 Category:


Between December 1914 and August 1915 Tom and Jim write to each other whenever they get a chance.  Tom talks about life at home on the farm while Jim writes from Egypt and then from the trenches of the Gallipoli peninsula.

From the author and illustrator of Le Quesnoy comes a moving story of two brothers separated by war.  It is based on the thousands of letters sent by and to Anzac soldiers fighting at Gallipoli, one of the most significant campaigns of the First World War.
