About this product
- DescriptionThe Best of Times is an uplifting Christmas story that plays on every last heart-string from from Britain's best-loved children's author, Michael Morpurgo. A story can bring love and laughter, sorrow and tears. But to save a life ...that will require the greatest story of all. When the Prince and the Princess marry, joy rings out across the land. But all too soon it fades away and a shadow hangs over the royal palace. As Christmas approaches, Prince Frederico must find a way to warm his new bride's aching heart. A story of enduring love, devotion and the wonder of life from former Children's Laureate and award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo. Illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark, this classically styled mini picture book is a winter's delight and the ideal story to share aloud at Christmas time.
- Author BiographyMichael Morpurgo, the former Children's Laureate, has written more than forty books and won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children's Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times. He is a tireless champion for children's books and was recently created Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the French government. Emma Chichester Clark is one of the country's top children's books illustrators, and is a past winner of the Mother Goose award. She has been nominated for the Kate Greenaway medal (for I Love You, Blue Kangaroo!), and shortlisted for the Kurt Maschler award twice.
