The poppy

In this version of the story Australians at the French village of Villers-Bretonneux, an unknown narrator visits the district of modern times. Using the device of a poppy flower floating on the wind, the reader visits significant sites in the village, recounting the events that occurred at each. Over 70 evocative illustrations help to tell a tale we should never forget - and the villagers never do.
