Summary

Marcia Williams captures the Great War through a child's eyes with a fascinating fictional scrapbook including real mementos of the day. Meet ten-year-old Archie, his family, and best friend in a scrapbook Archie has made himself, full of comic strips and plenty of other memorabilia. The year is 1914, and as the Great War begins, Archie's scrapbook reflects the war's impact on his life and on those who write back from the front. Marcia Williams retains her humor and energy as she employs a new collage style to present an intimate and compelling view of the First World War and its era.
