Another fantastic story from the creator of War Horse. 1945 Dresden, Germany. Lizzie, her mother – and an elephant from the zoo, flee the Allied fire-bombing in the end-game of the Second World War.
Escaping the Allies’ advance from the West – and the advancing Russian armies from the East – this extraordinary trio of refugees meet a downed RAF officer, cowering in a barn; a homeless school choir on the run from the Nazis; and the mechanised American cavalry, appearing over the horizon.
Adapted from Michael Morpurgo’s best-selling children’s novel by the creators of the 5 star hit Private Peaceful ★★★★★
