This award-winning and poignant picture book is about remembering those who serve in war.

Left! Left! Left! Right! Left! We make our way in the dark.

A family journeys through the early morning darkness … A group of young men huddle in a cold muddy trench … Reflection is a powerful tribute to those who have served their country.

Industry Reviews

The story-telling is mesmerising, and the illustrations constantly reveal new details hidden in the images. * Bookrapt *
The gentle thoughtfulness of this book brought tears to my eyes. A very special book to be treasured by those with family who have served in our military or peacekeeping forces, or those who appreciate and respect the sacrifice of our servicemen and women. * Kids' Book Review *
Rebecka Sharpe Shelberg has chosen her words carefully for young readers. Robin Cowcher, the illustrator has done a superb job with the illustrations - pen drawings with a watercolour wash. They are simple but compliment the story beautifully. * Bookseller NZ *
This book adds to the range of books available to remind students about war and its cost, of the many wars Australia has been involved in and the way we remember. And the beautiful water colour wash illustrations reflect this theme to perfection. * Read Plus *
