Forward March is an introduction to the ANZAC Legend and traditions. Covering the ANZAC DAY March and Gallipoli as well as recent wars, it is a beautiful picture book ideal for young children. David Kennett’s illustrations create a powerful visual text to go with Mattingley’s beautiful simple text to help us understand the experience of war. Pages are divided into boxes with lots of information and detail illustrations. These illustrations include techniques and media using acrylic paints, graphite pencil, dip pen and ink, watercolour and coloured pencils. The illustrations are so well created they look like faded portraits and coloured photos. This book is suitable for all age levels to appreciate.
