• Carnival of the Animals

A stunning gift collection of animal poems from master storyteller Michael Morpurgo, celebrating with heart and humour the creatures with whom we share our planet. Collaborating once more with iconic artist, Michael Foreman, Morpurgo's poems are inspired by The Carnival of the Animals - a humorous musical by the French composer Camille Saint-Saens. Building on this classic framework, Michael has added many more animals - they speak in their own voices, full of humour and brio, to tell of their lives and the impact of humanity on their habitats.

With full colour illustrations throughout, this celebrated partnership has created a gift book with a strong ecological message that will also ignite a love of poetry in young readers and will appeal to fans of The Lost Words. Above all it is a celebration of the natural world in verse, a book to treasure and to inspire.
