Charming story - love the art work
on 18 June 2014
In this beautifully illustrated book, Michael Morpurgo tells the story of Yannick, a young Parisian boy sent to stay with his aunt in Provence when his mother falls ill.
Yannick spends an idyllic month in the Provence countryside, and during his time there, he makes a surprising discovery.
The book looks like it is aimed at younger children, probably age 6/7 upwards, but I think that age group would need help to understand the story. I think it's more suitable for slightly older children, and would make a good 'read aloud at bedtime' book.
