Peg

Artwork by Jenny Breukelman

Peg is struggling for survival at her boarding school. Three bullies take aim on Peg and make her life utterly miserable. When her beloved Grandmother dies she just wants to disappear but then an unexpected gift arrives. Inside Peg finds three Canadian cast iron soldiers. In despair, she throws them against the floor. How can they help her? They are so small and the shadow cast by her bullies is so big. But, miraculously the toys come to life, as Indigenous Snipers from WWI, just in time to wage an epic battle against her bullies. With 2018 marking the 100th year anniversary of WWI, Peg is an excellent introduction to its history and a touching story that not only celebrates the First Nation participation in the war effort but also Peg’s personal victory. World Premiere!
