This is the story of a hero. Ten-year-old Robert knows many things.
He knows all about his hometown, Geneva, with its statues and
cannons and underground tunnels and the Longest Bench in the World.
He knows about the Red Cross and all the places his dad has been on
his missions. He knows that his mum is writing a book about
vampires and how long his older brother spends practicing his
'swag' poses in front of the mirror. He knows all about animals,
too, because his Auntie Delphia is a vet in Zimbabwe. But still he
has questions. Is his neighbour, Monsieur Renoir, really evil? Why
did he leave a Victoria Cross medal on Robert's doorstep? And why
has Auntie Delphia disappeared? In the 'Peace and Conflict' unit in
school, Robert learned all about wars and heroes. But as the lives
of his friends, foes and family unfold, he discovers what it really
means to be a hero ...
