Summary

A boy decides to try and save a statue of a soldier in his local park when he hears that it is going to be scrapped when the park is revamped.

Owen and his mum are struggling. It's just the two of them at home now and they're finding it difficult to ask for the help they need.

When Owen discovers a crumbling stone soldier in the local park, it feels like he finally has someone he can talk to about his worries. But the town council can't see how important the soldier is and they want to remove him.

Owen's scared that he'll be left on his own again, but can he find the courage he needs to save the soldier before it's too late?

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant or dyslexic readers aged 8+
