A lovely, sad story about a young man bonding with his grandfather, who was terribly burned in WWII. Heartbreaking and beautiful. ( )

Extraordinary book! Everyone should read this one. Beautifully illustrated, a very quick read with great depth. A heart wrenching topic, delicately handled. Thank you Mr Morpurgo! ( )
