Synopsis

My Brother's War by David Hill

It's 1914 - the biggest war the world has known has just broken out in Europe. Far away in New Zealand, William is keen to join up and fight the Germans but his younger brother, Edmund, is totally against the war and refuses to fight. While William trains to be a soldier, Edmund is arrested for being a 'conchie' and locked up in prison. Then he too is made to work for the army. What happens on the terrible battlefields in France? Will either brother live to fight another day?

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

Liz Evans

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
