Product description

On the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings, Michael Morpurgo tells a new story about this milestone moment in British history. Aunty Iris always treasured her small painting of a boat, painted by her close friend Alfie many years before. Her nephew, Michael, is inspired to try and find out what actually happened to Alfie in World War II. He embarks on a journey that takes him across the Channel into France, learning a profound lesson along the way about service and the surprising power of memory.

With stunning illustrations by Michael Foreman, this powerful book is perfect for the whole family to share and remember.
  • A stunning commemoration of the 80th anniversary of the D-Day invasion
  • Created by two legends of British children’s books, Michael Morpurgo (War Horse, Private Peaceful) and Michael Foreman (War Boy)
  • Developed in partnership with the Royal British Legion
