Product description

When Suzy’s father is called to war in a faraway jungle, she struggles to deal with his absence. Why did her father have to go? When will he return? And will she even recognise him when he does? As the months go by, measured by the arrival of postcards and the passing of holidays, Suzy’s father starts to feel further and further away. Suzanne Collins, the internationally bestselling author of the HUNGER GAMES series, has created a powerful and moving story based on her own childhood. With her signature ability to touch readers’ hearts, combined with James Proimos’s bright and friendly artwork, here is a book that will speak to any child who has had to spend time apart from a loved one

    I borrowed this book at the library. I found the poem about the dragon called Custard. I used to live in Vietnam and heard about the war. We read a book about Vietnam war as well.
