Tammy is safe at home, but her heart is with her father, who is away at war. While her mother knits socks for the soldiers, Tammy slips a message inside each pair. But will her one special message find her father and bring him safely home?

Based on a true exchange between Lance Corporal A. McDougall and a young girl, Message in a sock is a gorgeous collage-style tale that pays respect to the Anzacs and their families, a century after the end of the First World War.


Suitable for ages 4+

Hard cover, illustrations, 32 pages.
