In this involving tale, master storyteller and former children's laureate Michael Morpurgo revisits the "landscape of his memories", telling of his boyhood fifty years before. The village of Bradwell is a stone's throw from the sea and is peopled by quirky characters such as the three Stebbing sisters, the white moustachioed Colonel Burton and Bennie the village thug. But the heroine of this story is the serene Mrs Pettigrew, who lives in a railway carriage down in the marshes with her dogs, donkey, bees and hens. Industrial reality intrudes when plans are made to build a nuclear power station on the marshes, and when a village battle ensues for and against this environmental hazard, young Michael finds himself caught up in the sad fate of Mrs Pettigrew and the landscape of his boyhood.

Review:

Tender, lyrical tale from the author's childhood with environmental and conservational themes. * The Bookseller * Heartfelt and unforgettable. * The Irish Times * A beautifully crafted, achingly tender lyrical book. * Carousel * It is both moving and thoughtful, and will appeal to slightly more confident readers. Peter Bailey's lovely illustrations complement the book's charms * Junior *
