Where The Poppies Grow Now:

The carefree childhood for Ben and his best friend Ray becomes a distant memory when they join the army to serve their country. But, in the midst of battle can their friendship survive?


Written to mark the anniversary of the start of the First World War, in Where The Poppies Now Grow, Hilary Robinson and Martin Impey create a touching tribute to honour all those who sacrificed so much for peace.

The Christmas Truce: 

It's Christmas Eve 1914. A group of tired soldiers start singing Stille Nacht. Soldiers the other side of No Man's Land respond with Silent Night. The next day, soldiers on both sides put down their weapons and celebrate the spirit of Christmas Day with a friendly football match. In the sequel to the hugely popular Where The Poppies Now Grow, The Christmas Truce finds soldiers Ben and Ray shaking hands in friendship with Karl and Lars, a tribute to that remarkable moment in history when, for one day, peace found a place.

Peace Lily:

Peace Lily follows on from Where The Poppies Now Grow, The Christmas Truce and Flo Of The Somme and finds childhood friend, Lily, follow Ben and Ray to the battlefields. Peace Lily marks the contribution made by women to the First World War and celebrates the common humanity shown by all, on all sides.

Flo of the Somme:

…perfectly pitched by the pair who wrote and illustrated the acclaimed ‘Where Poppies Now Grow’ and ‘The Christmas Truce’… Robinson and Impey are developing an impressive history series with these distinctive titles.

Sally Morris – Daily Mail


Mercy dog, Flo, has more to contend with than racing across the dangerous battlefield of the Somme. Can she get her medical kit to the injured? Can she lead Ray, the stretcher-barrier, and his donkey to them in time?


Depicting key landmarks of the Somme such as High Wood, Sausage Valley and Crucifix Corner - the only pre war wayside cross which survived the battle - Flo of the Somme pays tribute to the remarkable bravery of the animals who played their part during World War 1.


Written with poignant poetic text and gentle watercolour illustrations, the story shows that, even during the most desperate times, a dog will always remain man's best friend.
