Published in association with Amnesty International and included in the USBBYs 2010 list of Outstanding International Books.
A most extraordinary illustrated book. Already a major hit in France, The Enemy is a profound, moving and poignant fable for our time about two lonely soldiers facing each other across a barren desert battlefield. Are they the only soldiers left? How can they end the war? Just who is the enemy?
Created by Davide Cali and Serge Bloch, the award-winning team behind I Can't Wait (winner of France's prestigious Baobab Award, and Honour Book in the American Library Association's Batchelder Award) and I Love Kissing You.
For readers aged from 7 to 77.
'Challenging the traditional notion of what a picture book is and who it is for is this stark, poignant book ... [which] boldly explores the futility of war.'The Sunday Age
'Impressive ... the award-winning team of Cali and Bloch seems set for further recognition ... Highly recommended.'Magpies
