The Little Stowaway is set at the end of WW1 where a ragged, hungry little French orphan came out of the fog on a freezing cold Christmas night in 1918 and wandered into an Australian airmen’s mess and his journey home began.

France. Winter. 1919. The First World War is almost over. An orphan named Honoré wanders, cold, hungry and lost. When he stumbles on the Australian Airforce barracks and meets Airman, Tim Tovell, his life is changed forever. The Little Stowaway tells the story of Australia’s Young Digger and his remarkable journey home.
