Curl up by the fireside with an enchanting collection of Christmas stories from Britain's best-loved children's author, Michael Morpurgo. Lose yourself in faraway lands and unexpected adventures with four tales from the master story-teller. The Best Christmas Present in the World A mysterious letter in a secret drawer brings one night in the Great War vividly to life. Writing home from the front, a soldier has an incredible story to tell. On Angel Wings A singing of wings, a glorious light, and a sudden beacon of brightness? It can only mean - can it really? - a visit from the Angel Gabriel himself ...The Best of Times When the Prince and 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. The Goose is Getting Fat ALL NEW FROM MICHAEL MORPURGO! Gertrude the goose is getting bigger by the day, and Charlie is proud to look after her. But as Christmas approaches, the thought of the grizzly fate awaiting her fills him with sadness. Can he save Gertrude from the Christmas dinner table? Former Children's Laureate and award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo, demonstrates why he is considered to be the master story teller. Each individual Christmas story in this collection features stunning illustrations from the biggest names in children's books - from Quentin Blake to Michael Foreman and Emma Chichester Clark to Sophie Allsopp. The perfect gift book to buy this winter.
