5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and moving, 26 Jan. 2012
I bought this for my 7 year old for christmas based on the great reviews. We have just read it together and I was surprised by how much it moved me. It is wonderfully written and pulls you straight into the story from the first page and you feel an empathy and compassion for the characters you have barely got to know. This book should be on the curriculum in all schools to truly educate about the human side of war. My daughter probably missed some of the subtleties and themes given her age but I know it will be one we will revisit and she will get more out of as she gets older. That said her parting words were "why can't people just play football instead of fighting" - from the mouth of babes!
