Shooting at the Stars
Full Product Description
Despite fierce fighting from both sides, both German and Allied soldiers ceased firing and came together on the battle field to celebrate the holiday. They sang Christmas carols, exchanged gifts and played football.
But as the sun began to rise, they returned to their separate trenches and waited for the battle to begin again. Interweaving beautiful illustrations with hand-lettered text, author and illustrator John Hendrix tells a story that celebrates the humanity and kindness that can persist even during the darkest periods of our history. This standout edition will be published to tie in with the 100th anniversary of the Christmas Truce and will make a very special Christmas gift and a timely story for young children who have parents serving overseas. Includes an author's note and archival image from the Christmas Truce.
