This story is aimed at children over the age of nine, however I think it is a great read for adults as well. It is based in 1917 and is the story of Stanley who enlists in the army when he is 14 years old. It follows him through the war with his messenger dog Bones as they struggle through life in the French Trenches.
I love books that evoke emotions and this one had me reading really fast so that I could find out what happened in the end - it made me cry and smile and worry all at the same time. I can not recommend this book enough, seriously it is a superb story for children and grown ups alike.
