Lone Pine: First World War Centenary edition

Susie Brown and Margaret Warner, illustrated by Sebastian Ciaffaglione

When a soldier on a First World War battlefield sends a pine cone home to his mother, he could not know that his simple gift would become a symbol of history and remembrance.

Suzie Brown and Margaret Warner's sensitive text is evocatively illustrated by Sebastian Ciaffaglione, and tells a story that is about both personal experience and a nation defining event.

This title was originally published in 2012, and was chosen that year as a Notable Australian Children’s Book, by the Children's book council of Australia.

Hard cover, full colour illustrations, 32 pages.
