Review:

“The Butterfly Lion is unique among animals and books, and will touch all hearts – both young and old.” – Virginia McKenna, Born Free Foundation

“The Butterfly Lion tells of loneliness and love in a way that is wholly appropriate for young readers.” – Julia Eccleshare, chair of the adult judging panel, Smarties Prize 1996

“A magical, mysterious story with the power to draw readers back again and again.” – Jenny Morris, adult judging panel, Smarties Prize 1996

“This beautiful story of love and war has everything – even a great twist.” – Young Telegraph

“This sensitive, highly visual story deserves to be recognised as a masterpiece.” – Junior Education

“The most beautifully crafted story I’ve read for a long time.” – Wendy Cooling

“Morpurgo writes with a fine mixture of clarity, depth and feeling.” – Sunday Times

From the Author:

The Butterfly Lion grew from several magical roots: The memories of a small boy who tried to run away from school a long time ago; a book about a pride of white lions discovered by Chris McBride; a chance meeting in a lift with Virginia McKenna, actress and champion of lions and all creatures born free; a true story of a soldier of the First World War who rescued some circus animals in France from certain death; and the sighting from a train of a white horse carved out on a chalky hillside near Westbury in Wiltshire.

To Chris McBride, Virigina McKenna and Gina Pollinger - many many thanks. And to you the reader - enjoy it! Michael Morpurgo (FEB 1996)
