Simpson and his donkey - Big book edition
Mark Greenwood and Frane Lessac
Ideal for shared classroom reading activities, this “Big Book” measures 45 x 34 cm. Painted throughout in full colour, this is the moving story of John Kirkpatrick Simpson and Duffy, his donkey. Together they rescued over 300 men during the campaign at Gallipoli. Backed by detailed research, the text includes a brief biography of the man, details of his work at Gallipoli, and also the little known story of how, without realising, he rescued his childhood friend from South Shields, Billy Lowes. The text also includes fact files on Simpson and Billy Lowes, maps, and additional historical background information such as how Duffy received a VC. Hard cover big book, full colour illustrations, 35 pages.
