Product description

Utterly essential. The stirring tale of the Remembrance Day poppy, told by the author of War Horse. In 1915, in war-torn Belgium, a soldier named John McCrae writes the famous poem In Flanders Fields. But neither he nor the local village girl who saves a discarded draft of it has any idea of the huge power it will exert on generations to come… Michael Morpurgo teams up once again with master illustrator Michael Foreman to tell a haunting story from the First World War trenches. And who better to tell it than this legendary duo? A story about remembrance. A book you’ll never forget.

  • A haunting tale of remembrance by a legendary team
  • Explains the origin and legacy of the poppy symbol
  • By the author of War Horse and Private Peaceful
  • Beautiful illustrations by the creator of War Game

    So many memories

    I was drawn in by the wonderful poppies. My mother was Belgian,from Ypres, and met my father when he was stationned there in the war. Our many childhood holidays were spent visiting relatives who had farms in and around the places mentionned in the story. The poppy fields, menin gate, bugle playing all evoke beautiful memories of happy times spent in a place that had seen such horrors. A wonderful story woven round the tradition of the poppy. I am ordering further copies for my father and my grown up children...Lest we forget
