Amazon Description

In this moving picture book, award-winning collaborators Davide Cali and Serge Bloch present a fable for our time about two lonely soldiers facing each other across a barren battlefield. What each discovers, as the story unfolds, is that the enemy is not a faceless beast, but rather a real person with family, friends, and dreams.

One Potato Review

Unmanned bombers in Afghanistan are these days being piloted by a guy with a joy-stick in Arizona. Kids don’t know this necessarily, but they will. In an age where it is increasingly difficult to look away - from blockbuster movies and gaming simulations and Diane Sawyer - this book is a worthy and graceful reminder of the lives and family pictures at the other end of our generalizations. Because if the enemy is us, maybe we have less to be afraid of. With spare line drawings, simple, accessible text, and a message in a bottle.
