Five minutes...

Two minutes....

Young soldier Jim McLeod waits in the trenches of World War I for the order to attack the enemy. With him are his friends and Nipper, the messenger dog. When they charge across no-man’s land Jim is shot ... and finds himself face to face with an enemy soldier. A sensitively-written war story that shows the similarities between men on both sides. Includes CD with hauntingly beautiful song.

About the Author

Award-winning children's fiction author, David Hill, was inspired to try his hand at picture book writing by the poignant song Little Red Poppy, written by Canadian Rob Kennedy.

    Comments about The Red Poppy:

    As a teacher of children experiencing difficulties learning to read I found this book engaged many of the children. It was particularly relevant as Australia was remembering the 100th anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli.
