Win a copy of Fromelles by Carole Wilkinson

This week we are giving away a copy of our March release Fromelles: Australia’s Bloodiest Day at War by the multi-award-winning author, Carole Wilkinson. This book is an excellent educational resource for young readers. There’s lots of visual stimulus to keep readers engaged, including maps, fact-boxes, photographs and diagrams. Also, the combination of non-fiction and fiction accounts, make this a fascinating and engaging read and is sure to motivate young persons interest in Australian history.

The Battle of Fromelles lasted less than 24 hours – in which more than 5000 Australian soldiers were killed, wounded or taken prisoner. More Australian soldiers died at Fromelles than in the Boer War, Korean War and Vietnam War combined.

Just tell us in 25 words or less why you would like to win a copy. Leave your comment below and the winner will be announced next Wednesday 13th April.

Also, look out for our upcoming interview with the author Carole Wilkinson.

    I would like to win this book because I love captivating war stories with bits of fiction mingled in. (And your dragonkeeper books really grabbed me.)

    My sons eat books – especially realistic fiction. Even hubby (not a reader) read the Dragon Keeper series because boys’ enthusiasm grabbed him. Hubby enjoyed too.

    I like Carole Wilkinson and I’d like to learn more about what the ANZACs did in war for us. I don’t know enough about it.
