About the Story

Once there was a shepherd, a very special coat - and hope. 

Glenda Millard & Phil Lesnie's story is a moving tale that will help grandparents relate personal experiences of war with young children. Read warmly by artist, Anna Taylor, who has her own poignant connection to the story.
