Already a major hit in France, 'The Enemy' is a profound, moving and poignant fable for our time about two lonely soldiers facing each other across a barren desert battlefield. Are they the only soldiers left? How can they end the war? Just who is the enemy?

Published in association with Amnesty International, this timeless picture book will appeal to adults and children alike.

Created by Davide Cali and Serge Bloch, the award-winning team behind 'I Can't Wait' (winner of France's prestigious Baobab Award, and Honour Book in the American Library Association's Batchelder Award) and 'I Love Kissing You'. This Wilkins Farago edition marks its first publication into English anywhere in the world. For readers aged from 7 to 77.

'Challenging the traditional notion of what a picture book is and who it is for is this stark, poignant book... [which] boldly explores the futility of war.' - The Sunday Age

'Impressive... the award-winning team of Cali and Bloch seems set for further recognition... Highly recommended.' - Magpies
