Jacqueline: a soldier’s daughter
A new book by creators of the CBCA shortlisted title, The Good Son, Pierre-Jacques Ober and Jules Ober.
An only child, Jacqueline always dreamt of having a sister. Amid the turmoil of a world at war when the adults have seemingly gone mad, she embarks on a perilous journey and ultimately finds a sister in a most unexpected way.
Featuring a new narrative form at once deeply evocative and visually poetic, the story is illustrated with miniatures. Magnificently printed, it is a book at the intersection of art book, photographic novel and children’s picture book.
