The first book in this range is "My Great-Grandad was a Soldier", written by Rosita Bird and illustrated by Lynn Costelloe, who have both designated 100% of their royalties from the book to benefit Care After Combat, a UK charity helping services veterans. Foreword by war hero Simon Weston, CBE. In addition, $0.25 from every e-book version sold, and $1 from every PRINT copy sold, will go to Care After Combat. |
Jacob lives with his parents Sandra and Adrian but also spends a lot of time with his grandparents Jean and Dave. One day Jacob discovers a World War 2 soldier's uniform in his grandad's loft. This leads to many questions as the uniform belonged to his great grandad who was an engineer in the army. This then leads to Jacob wanting to follow in his footsteps in seeking a similar career in the army.
