After World War 1, a little boy called George, living in Victoria, Australia decides to work hard and raise two pennies to help build a school in Villers-Bretonneux, France. This town had been flattened by war and the school destroyed.

This is a powerful and poignant story about a little boy who, with courage, hope and perseverance, helped to build this school across the oceans.

A bond was forged between George and Villers-Bretonneux that was never broken.

George was one of many Victorian schoolchildren who raised money to build the Victoria School in France after World War 1. This is his story.

A moving story that outlines the wonderful relationship between Australia and Villers-Bretonneux, a relationship that has continued through the generations. Lorraine El Yabouri, Musée Franco-Australien, Villers-Bretonneux.

This delightful book reminds us that even the smallest effort can make a big difference. Patrick McIntosh, RSL Care Chairman.

Hope and perseverance are the overwhelming themes of author Vicki Bennett's latest book, Two Pennies. Emma Williams, Courier Mail.

I love that this little boy helps his dad and I love the pictures. Oliver Orth, 8 years old.

Two Pennies is an engaging tale of one person's contribution to repairing the damage that war creates. Sydney Morning Herald.
