Coming Home is a stylish winter by Michael Morpurgo, illustrated by Kerry Hyndman and published by David Fickling Books.
Winter is coming and for one solitary robin it’s time to make the journey home and back to his partner. Following his heart and the line of the river he sets off on a long and eventful trip. It’s a treacherous flight as he dodges rain storms, predators and wild seas, but this little robin also finds friendship and kindness to help him on his way.
A lyrical story full of rich, descriptive language and infectious rhythm. Morpurgo writes beautifully about this fascinating aspect of bird life, humanising the robins with style.
Powerful illustrations in bold colours showcase the dramatic scenery perfectly as the robin flies across changing landscapes.
A wonderful story, perfect for sharing in the run up to Christmas.
