Billie Templar's War

By Ellie Irving

Billie needs to get her Dad home from the war NOW! Her plan to get the Queen to send him home involves organising a military tattoo, with marching bands, unruly villagers and even an elephant. Both laugh-out-loud funny and utterly heart-wrenching, and featuring an unforgettable cast of sweet, crazy characters, this book is definitely "happy and glorious".
