The house that was built in a day - ANZAC Cottage

Written by Valerie Everett and illustrated by Barbara McGuire

With her passion for uncovering stories of outstanding Australians, Valerie Everett writes of a time when the young nation of Australia raised a volunteer army to serve overseas. So proud were we of these soldiers that, upon their return, monuments in their honour were erected all across Australia. One of these with a special story is the “ANZAC cottage”, built in one day in 1916 by volunteers in Mount Hawthorn, Western Australia. Hard cover, illustrated throughout, 31 pages.
