OUT NOW: An Anzac Tale

With the outbreak of war in 1914, best friends Wally, Roy and Tom are among the first to enlist. But their great adventure soon turns to disaster.

The day after the landing at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915, more than 2000 of their fellow Anzacs are dead and the bold attempt by the British commanders to knock the Turks out of the war, quickly becomes a stalemate.

As the Gallipoli campaign drags on, Wally, Roy and Tom find themselves locked in combat with a formidable enemy, a ferocious landscape, flies, fleas, cold and disease.

Australia's best graphic picture book team, Ruth Starke and Greg Holfeld, have combined to create an extraordinary and original work which will be appreciated on many levels and by different ages.

Based on impeccably researched material and overseen by the Head of Historical Research and war historian of the National Museum of Australia, An Anzac Tale is like no other book about Gallipoli.

The book scored three gongs at the Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Awards for 2013, named Notable Book in the Picture Book, Younger Readers and Information Book catgeories.

An Anzac Tale is OUT NOW through Working Title Press.
