In 1914, ten-year-old Archie is sent a scrapbook in the post by his Uncle Colin, and through the years that follow, we see the world through Archie's eyes, as documented in a collage of strip comics, doodles, drawings, mementos, photographs and hand-written comments.
Offering a unique insight into the realities of daily life through the First World War, Archie's exuberant and anarchic scrapbook includes everything from rude caricatures of Grandma through to his worries and fears for his father, who is fighting on the battlefields of France.
Entertaining, thought-provoking and rich with detail, children will enjoy taking time to explore each page, and following Archie's story through to the end of the war.
