Waterstones Says

Hughes’s beautiful, highly affecting picture book centres around young evacuee Lenny and his brass badge featuring a lion representing bravery and a unicorn symbolising courage.  

This special edition includes stories from real-life evacuees, uncovered from the Imperial War Museums.

When Lenny's father goes to fight in the Second World War, he gives his son a brass badge with two animals engraved on it: a lion for bravery and a unicorn for courage.

Then, Lenny himself must go away, as he is evacuated from his home and family to escape the bombing. Staying in a strange new place, Lenny gathers all his lion bravery, all his unicorn courage, and discovers that magic can happen, even in the most desperate of times.

Packed with incredible illustrations, this heart-warming story is accessible for readers of all ages.
