More Muck and Magic: Stories from the Countryside

Farms for City Children, the charity set up by Michael and Clare Morpurgo, gives children from inner-city schools the chance to stay and work on a farm in Devon for a week, and to truly experience life in the country. In a similar way, the pages of this warm anthology capture an inspirational snapshot of the countryside and its animals. From Ted Hughes’€™ famous animal poems and Michael Morpurgo’€™s dog’€™s-eye-view to the visit paid by the mysterious Mona in Jamila Gavin’€™s family story, there is a special insight for everyone in this book.
