Summary
Tammy is safe at home, but her heart is with her father at the war front. While her mother knits socks for the soldiers, Tammy slips a message inside each pair. Will her special message find her father, and bring him safely home? Based on a true exchange between Lance Corporal McDougall and a young girl, Message in a Sock is a collage-style tale
Summary
Tammy and her mum are safe at home, but their hearts are at the warfront. When the call comes, they volunteer to knit socks for the soldiers in the trenches, binding love and hope into every stitch. Tammy's Dad is a soldier too. With each message she slips into the socks, she includes a special one just for him. Every day she waits for the postman, until one day a letter comes. Based on a true exchange between a Lance Corporal and a young girl, Message in a Sock pays respect to the ANZACs and their families, a century after the end of World War I
