Michael loves to visit Mrs Pettigrew in her railway carriage by the sea, where she lives with her donkey, dogs and hens. But when plans are made to build a nuclear power station on the marshes, Mrs Pettigrew’s idyllic life is threatened – along with the gulls, owls, kestrels and insects who also live there. Soon a local battle begins among the villagers, as they campaign for and against the power station. But as Michael is caught up in the struggle to save the marshes, he discovers that nothing can ever stay the same… A tender and lyrical story inspired by Michael Morpurgo’s boyhood, set in the coastal village where he grew up. Beautifully illustrated by Peter Bailey, it vividly brings to life a bygone time and its lost landscapes.
“From the first sentence of a Michael Morpurgo book, you know you are in the hands of a natural storyteller.” Guardian
“Bailey’s line drawings have a lovely old-fashioned quality appropriate to the remembrances inspired by Morpurgo’s boyhood.” School Library Journal
