Product description

A crumbling stone soldier sits on a bench in the park. Only Owen realises how important he is. At home, Owen and his mum are struggling and there’s nobody he can talk to. Hidden away in the park, Owen feels free to be himself. When the war-weary soldier is listening, his worries slip away. But nobody else cares about the soldier. When the town council decide to tear him down, Owen’s the only one who can save him. Can he find the courage to speak up before it’s too late?

  • A touching story of loss, remembrance and courage
  • By the award-winning author of The Goldfish Boy
  • The story of a grieving boy whose father died in a war
  • Printed in a dyslexia-friendly typeface on cream paper
  • Accessible language which supports struggling readers

“A clever, thought provoking story that draws parallels between past and present conflicts, and how we remember those lost so that we can move on.” Emma Carroll

“I really really loved Lisa Thompson’s Owen and the Soldier. Such economy but such huge emotion. It’s small but mighty.” Phil Earle
