Description

One of today’s greatest storytellers explores the craft of writing in this collection of stories and essays by Michael Morpurgo.

Here is a literary journey that roams from the warmth of Provence in "Meeting Cézanne" to the war-torn town of "I Believe in Unicorns;" from the music-fi lled streets of Venice in "The Mozart Question" to the quiet English marshes of Michael Morpurgo’s hometown in "Singing for Mrs. Pettigrew." Complementing each tale is an original essay revealing the inspiration behind the story or offering a peek into the intricacies of the author’s craft. Readers and writers alike will be intrigued by this unique collection from a teller of tales who has captured hearts around the world.
