From one of Australia’s most-loved authors comes a book about homecomings, and the enduring power of love.

Now the war is over

And they say the world is free, 

Though somewhere guns are snarling,

You've come back to me.

War may never truly end, but there can be homecomings.

From two of Australia's most highly regarded children's book creators, Jackie French and Anne Spudvilas, this is a powerful and moving book. Created from a poem, When the War is Over doesn't focus on one particular war, but covers a wide period from WWI to current-day peacekeeping around the world and highlights important aspects to draw in readers.
