Description

It's 1915 and British troops are about to sail to Gallipoli. Billy is the youngest soldier in his platoon and is teased for not being old enough to drink or shave. The truth is, at 15 he's not old enough to be a soldier either, and he's terrified of the war he's about to fight. Then he meets Captain, a refugee boy, and his donkey, Hey-ho. Together they teach Billy what it means to be brave, loyal and fearless, and above all what it means to be a friend.

Review quote

Angus follows her previous hits Hero and Soldier Dog with a new animal adventure set in the First World War. With no new Morpurgo title scheduled in this genre this... fills the gap very nicely. -- Children's Special 2014-2015 * The Bookseller *
