About the Book

A sweeping story of love and rescue and an unforgettable journey back in time to the Second World War – from the Nation’s Favourite Storyteller

At her ancestors’ home in Ithaca, Australian-Greek girl Nandi discovers – through a friendship with a very unusual flying fish – the extraordinary story of her Auntie Elena; of how she fell in love and how she became an unsung hero of the Second World War.

But Elena has gone missing and Nandi has to find her. In her search, she will discover that Elena was an even greater hero than she thought – and still is . . .

Stunningly illustrated throughout by acclaimed artist George Butler, When Fishes Flew is a classic Morpurgo novel that will move and thrill readers of all ages.
