Best of Times by Michael Morpurgo

Book Description

The 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.

Book Review: Best of Times by Michael Morpurgo - Reviewed by (24 Nov 2011)

The Best of Times by Michael Morpurgo is a short picture book with a fairytale feeling; it is a christmassy feeling book, so perfect for now (it's almost December when I'm writing this) and perfect to buy and put away, only to bring out on the night of Christmas eve.

Very different from Mr. Morpurgo's other books, novels, picture books, and middle grade books, and only slightly similar to his rendition of Hansel and Gretle, it is an odd story of a prince deeply in love who must save his princess. A perfect love story, but a sad one all the same. A must buy!
