Poppy Field

by Michael Morpurgo

A new illustrated story celebrating the poppy's history.

Michael Morpurgo and Michael Foreman have teamed
up with the Royal British Legion to tell an original story
that explains the meaning behind the poppy.


In Flanders' fields, young Martens knows his family's story, for
it is as precious as the faded poem hanging in their home. From
a poor girl comforting a grieving soldier, to an unexpected meeting
of strangers, to a father's tragic death many decades after
treaties were signed, war has shaped Martens's family in profound
ways - it is their history as much as any nation's.


They remember.
They grieve.
They honour the past.



This book also includes a full-colour, illustrated afterword
that explains the history that inspired the story.
