Flapper, VC by Mark Wilson
Flapper, VC is based on the true story of an Australian carrier pigeon during World War II. Raised and trained in Australia, Flapper is sent off to war in the Pacific. While on patrol deep in the jungle, Flapper's unit find themselves surrounded by enemy troops. With no other means of communication, the men's only hope of survival is Flapper, who has to evade enemy snipers and machine guns to get a message through to save the patrol.
Flapper was awarded the animal equivalent of the Victoria Cross for his actions that day, and his medal is proudly displayed at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.
This memorable tale, illustrated with Mark Wilson's beautifully crafted and evocative artwork, is a moving story of animals in war.

Hickory Dickory Dash by Tony Wilson & Laura Wood
This story is for anyone who has ever wondered just why the mouse was running up and down the clock as it struck one. The rhyme has been told, and song sung, for generations, and in Hickory Dickory Dash Tony Wilson and Laura Wood share with us just what could have happened in the preceding few hours to cause a mouse to behave in such a way. With her children vanished, and a cat in hot pursuit, the tension builds as the valiant Mother Mouse continues the frantic search for her missing babies. What will happen to cause her to take up clock-running at the appointed hour, and will she find her children, evade the cat, and manage to get them all safely home? Woods’ illustrations mesh seamlessly with Wilson’s verses to take readers both young and old along with them on a danger-filled adventure with a satisfyingly happy resolution.
