Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An eloquent counterpoint to the senselessness and inhumanity of war, In Flanders Fields tells the story of a young homesick World War I soldier, who risks his life to cross the no-man's land and rescue a robin caught in the barbed wire that separates the opposing forces, dug into their trenches. This moving picture book is a plea for compassion and would make a perfect Veteran's Day gift.

Review:

"The illustrations perfectly reinforce the somber tone of the story....Although the incident may be completely fictional, the book stands as a powerful story..." School Library Journal

About the Author

Norman Jorgensen was born in Broome, Australia, in 1954. The eldest of four boys, he lived in several country towns before his parents settled in the hills above Perth. His interest in history and World War I was fired by Saturday afternoon films and the novels he read as a boy. He has had a lifelong passion for books and has spent many years working as a bookseller. He now lives in an old house in Perth with his partner Jan.

Born in England, Brian Harrison-Lever arrived in Australia as a young teenager in the 1950s. A teacher of drawing and design, he has had a lifelong interest in mountains. He was co-founder of Western Australia's first Himalayan trekking company, leading eighteen high altitude adventures. But he continues to see illustrating children's books as his greatest challenge. He has two adult children and lives in Tasmania with his wife.

Lest we forget, Norm has reminded us of the humanity of those young boys who found themselves among the mud and mire of WW1 ~ every home should have a copy for their children.

it was a beautiful novel, with amazing illustrations and coloured plates. I was immmensly impressed by this book and commend its authour. Never again will I see such a moving and enforcing picture book, if it even can bear the title without sounding juvenille
