Product description

Utterly essential. The stirring tale of the Remembrance Day poppy, told by the author of War Horse. In 1915, in war-torn Belgium, a soldier named John McCrae writes the famous poem In Flanders Fields. But neither he nor the local village girl who saves a discarded draft of it has any idea of the huge power it will exert on generations to come… As the world gears up for the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, Michael Morpurgo teams up with master illustrator Michael Foreman to tell a haunting story from the First World War trenches. And who better to tell it than this legendary duo, who brought you Lucky Button and The Mozart Question? A story about remembrance. A book you’ll never forget.

  • A haunting tale of remembrance by a legendary team
  • Explains the origin and legacy of the poppy symbol
  • By the author of War Horse and Private Peaceful
  • Beautiful illustrations by the creator of War Game
