Pippa loves staying with her Aunty Peggy. She loves going for walks, whether it’s sunshiney or cold – long, wandering walks where her wellies take her. Follow Pippa into the beautiful countryside as her day unfolds, and the wildlife, animals and people she encounters are complemented by relevant poems from some of our greatest authors, personally chosen by Clare and Michael Morpurgo. Part poetry anthology, part child’s scrapbook, this is a truly lavish project designed to instil a love of language in young children.
Written by Clare & Michael Morpurgo. Illustrated by Olivia Lomenech Gill.

Reading charity Booktrust is pleased to announce former Children’s Laureate and best-selling author Michael Morpurgo as its new President. The role, previously held by the late Doris Lessing, offers a notable figure as a supporter and ambassador for Booktrust’s work.
Booktrust believes that no-one should miss out on the life changing benefits that reading can bring. It gives free books to children via national programmes such as ‘Bookstart’, which works through locally based organisations to give packs of books to babies and toddlers, with guidance materials for parents and carers. With over 90 years of expertise in recommending books, it runs sponsored book prizes and manages creative reading projects, such as the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Waterstones Children’s Laureate. This year, it launched a brand new prize – The Booktrust Best Book Awards, supported by Kindle.

her billowing heart <3
I loved this book and so did my brother. I read it to him at night time and he loves the illustrations. It was as if there was many stories all put into one when my brother and I read the poems.
I would rank this book 5 out of 5. Thankyou, Mr. Morpurgo for this great book.
