Tag Archives: AnAnzacTale


This text is based on a story of the Anzacs that fought for us. Wally and his mate Roy were the first to sign up to go to war. They both thought it was going to be an adventure. They had a mate and his name was Tom but instead of it being an adventure over 2000 ANZACS were killed with some of them being Wallies mates. All the characters in the story are animals. Most of the Anzacs signed up so they could get money because they got lots of money a day. The authors hidden message is do not sign up to war because you think it is going to be an adventure. It will never be.
I really liked this book because it was based on the Anzacs. I would rate it a 10/10.
