Bertie rescues an orphaned white lion cub from the African veld. They are inseparable until Bertie is sent to boarding school far away in England and the lion is sold to a circus.

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)
