A Tail of Two Diggers
Today I recognise John Gillam and Yvonne Fletcher on the release of their new book, A Tail of Two Diggers. The book teaches children about post-traumatic stress disorder in Anzac soldiers through storytelling and illustration using dogs to help explore this important issue. It is incredibly important that children are made aware of the wounds inflicted upon our brave service men and women, both visible and invisible. The book will be launched in the Anzac Rooms at South Newcastle Leagues Club on 26 November. This is an innovative and vital work and I congratulate the authors and the illustrator, Paul Durrell.
