MEDIA REVIEWS
"The author recreates historic periods with a wonderful sense of atmosphere, truly transporting the reader to a different era. [...]Sometimes, dream pairings of author and illustrator come along - and Michael Morpurgo and Michael Foreman are one of those pairings. The delicate illustrations and colour plates encapsulate the emotion and atmosphere of the story perfectly. An atmospheric and moving story from a master storyteller." * Parents in Touch *
"Michael Morpurgo employs his familiar technique of using an old character to tell a story to good effect" * Angels and Urchins *
"Award-winning Michel Morpurgo's warm-hearted time slip story cleverly interweaves the lives of two boys, Jonah and Nathaniel." * Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month, LoveReading *
"Everyone loves an orphan story and the Foundling Hospital, created by Thomas Coram in 1739 with help from William Hogarth and George Frideric Handel, has inspired many authors. Hetty Feather, Jacqueline Wilson's resident of the London charity, is perhaps the most famous creation. Well, Hetty has competition now. Michael Morpurgo's moving tale, illustrated beautifully by the mighty Michael Foreman, begins in the present day [...] Heartwarming stuff - a foundling story worth finding." * The Times, Children's Book of the Week *
"A foundling story worth finding." * The Times, Best children's books of 2017 *
