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 and New Zealand soldiers on the front were sent Christmas care packages in a tin billy.

The Anzac Billy is the heartwarming story of a little boy packing a billy with all his father’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.

  • Tender, moving and very evocative of a time when people just had to wait and hope. 
  • Perfectly researched, exquisitely rendered, no reader could fail to be moved by this story of Australian and New Zealand soldiers. 
  • Published in time for Anzac Day to capitalise on interest in the wartime history of Australia and New Zealand.
