by Alan Pollock; illustrated by Bryony Thomson.

Paperback edition now available! Hardback currently out of stock.

This picture book is based on the true story of the bear cub adopted by young Polish solders who fought in the cruel and decisive Battle of Monte Cassino in May 1944. Wojtek became the soldiers' companion through the Italian campaign and, after they made him an Officer, stood alongside them in battle, ultimately emigrating with them to Scotland when all were left stateless at the end of the war. A story of loyalty, friendship, family and displacement amongst the senseless horror of war.

Available with signed bookplates from this site; to buy with discount and free UK postage from www.hive.co.uk, click here for the hardback and here for the paperback editions.
