An award-winning, stunningly illustrated, sober depiction of war.

A recipient of the prestigious Nami Concours prize, this remarkable book of striking, often surreal illustrations and sparse prose reveals the many sides of war: where it comes from, how it creeps up on us, and how it destroys everything in its wake. During a time when wars are fought around the world, this evocative and bold interpretation may serve as a vehicle for difficult yet necessary discussions among readers of all ages. As Deborah Ellis, author of the Breadwinner series, says: “If children are tough enough to be bombed and starved, they're tough enough to read about it.”
