Product description

A magical collaboration between War Horse author Michael Morpurgo and Horrid Henry illustrator Tony Ross.

Michael loves his grandfather’s stories about the Sandman and the turtles, but he doesn’t believe that they are real. But that’s about to change, because the Sandman is very real indeed … and Michael and his cousins Barry and Polly are going to need his help.

The Sandman and the Turtles is a charming adventure from former Children’s Laureate Michael Morpurgo, the master storyteller behind An Eagle in the Snow, Listen to the Moon, Private Peaceful, and An Elephant in the Garden. Michael has written more than one hundred books for children and won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children’s Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times.

Tony Ross is one of Britain’s best known illustrators. He has worked on the bestselling ‘Little Princess’ and ‘Horrid Henry’ stories, David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny and many, many more. He lives in Wales.

    Look Inside??

    I'm reviewing the scholastic website rather than this book in particular. When you see the words look inside, you think, great, I can see if the text or illustrations are appropriate for the children's needs. The look inside here, means you see 1 page with the dedication, copyright info and publishing date - what use is this!!

    Scholastic: You can read the entire first chapter of the book using the arrows at the top of the Look Inside pop-up box.
