As the youngest in a family of six, all eleven-year-old Anthony wants is a pair of shoes to call his own. Instead he’s condemned to wear a pair of hand-me-down wellies that may or may not be haunted.

But it is only when a foreign plane crashes into the Welsh hillside that Anthony and his gang discover what war is really about…
