Grandpa Christmas

by Michael Morpurgo, illustrated by Jim Field
£9.99   hardback  Egmont UK Ltd (Egmont Books Ltd) (2018)

Grandpa Christmas by Michael Morpurgo, illustrated by Jim Field Renowned children's author Michael Morpurgo teams up with bestselling illustrator Jim Field in this stunning Christmas picture book.
 
Dearest little Mia, This Christmas, instead of a Christmas card – you’ll have plenty of those – and instead of a present – you’ll have plenty of those too, I am sending you a letter...
 
Every Christmas Mia and her family read a letter which her Grandpa wrote to her. His letter is a warm, impassioned and heartfelt wish for a better world for Mia to live in. He remembers fondly the times they spent in his garden finding frogs and worms and planting seeds.
 
But Grandpa worries that all the things they love so much are in danger...
 
His letter is a hopeful plea to Mia (and to all of us) to continue to care for and protect our precious world.
 
Michael Morpurgo frames his powerful message about protecting the environment in this beautiful personal story about a grandpa’s wish for his granddaughter to live in a better world. This vital and timely story is paired with Jim Field’s emotive illustrations in this gorgeous Christmas picture book, perfect for the whole family to share.
