The Gold Collection
Four unforgettable novels by award-winning former Children's Laureate, Michael Morpurgo, beautifully packaged as classic gift set.
Luxury gift edition box set of four best-selling Michael Morpurgo novels:
The year is 1943. The setting is the seaside village of Slapton, Devon, for this moving story which is a subtle blend of history and human and animal relationships. Suddenly the villagers, together with families from six neighbouring villages totalling 3000, are ordered to move out so that US troups can practice their landings in preparation for D-Day, when the forces will invade France.
Bertie rescues an orphaned white lion cub from the African veld. They are inseparable until Bertie is sent to boarding school far away in England and the lion is sold to a circus. Bertie swears that one day they will see one another again…
Young Thomas Peaceful looks back over his childhood memories from the battlefields of the First World War. But the clock is ticking, and every moment Tommo spends remembering, means another moment closer to something that will change his life forever.
Antonito lives an idyllic life on his parentsâ bull farm in Spain. But the idyll is shattered when he realises that his beloved bull calf, Paco, is destined for the bloody struggle of the bull ring. What can he do…?
The perfect present for younger readers keen to learn more about the world around them through powerfully imaginative stories.
