Hilary's story, The Flood at Honey Pot Farm was broadcast on Radio 4 Extra on the 5th May. It tells the story of a dog from Poland who helps to rescue a stray lamb. In at 5'04.
As a Patron of the Children's University, Hilary will be speaking and presenting awards on behalf of Lambeth at South Bank University on the 23rd June.
Flo of the Somme is an absolutely stunning book: beautiful illustrations and a moving story told in a simple, meaningful way. The history of children’s literature tells us that young people are fascinated by stories of animals: and through the pages of this new book they will see the First World War in a very different way. I hope one day that it might inspire them to stand at Crucifix Corner, depicted in the book, look towards the dark mass of High Wood and imagine Flo there with them, and remember the millions of animals who were there because ‘they had no choice’.
