This book is beautifully written and illustrated.  It's a definite treasure to read and add to your library shelves. It's a twaddle free story of two Australian mates Bluey and Dusty. We follow their friendship and journey from joining the defense force, being deployed at Gallipoli and their experiences of living, working and fighting in World War I and then finally returning home to Australia.

The illustrations contribute to the depth and meaning of the story.  Sir N loves this book and has asked me to read it to him again which is always a good sign of a twaddle free book. This is an excellent book to introduce young children to the reality of Gallipoli and the reality of the World War.



Welcome to Tuesdays Treasures. I started these posts as a way of sharing great books in honour of my friend in New Zealand who would arrive with the treasures she had unearthed at her weekly trip to the library!

There are so many wonderful books and Resources out there out there hiding on shelves and somewhere on the internet.
