Torty and the soldier, by Jennifer Beck
Well done, Jennifer Beck. This is a tale I have heard many accounts off, and this is by far my favourite. Factual books are amazing. I love reading and learning about the two world wars (even though the tactics tent to make me paranoid, e.g the mustard gas attack in WW1, I’m not going to go into detail about mustard gas). It’s important to know about our history so that we can relish to world we know now. I know a few people that took our world for granted until I made them read a few factual books about the world wars. A great book to delight readers of all ages.
