A tender, moving story of a child waiting at home for the return of his father from serving in WWI. During World War I, Australian soldiers on the front were sent Christmas care packages in a tin billy. The Anzac Billy is the story of a little boy packing a billy with all his fat...her's favourite things - added to by mum and grandma - even though he realises there is no way that the billy can actually go to a particular soldier. Perfectly researched, exquisitely rendered, no reader could fail to be moved by this Australian story.
