Michael Morpurgo (au); Michael Foreman (il)
On a small island in the middle of a silver lake there once lived a sad young man. He was sad because he had grown up into a giant of a man, very big, very strong & very frightening. Because of this, no one liked to go near him. So his only friends were the wild creatures that lived all around him. Then one day, he saves a girl from drowning, a girl in a wide-brimmed straw hat. Little did he know how she was going to change his life forever. Morpurgo draws on traditional storytelling to weave a tale of extraordinary relevance to our own world today. A story of compassion, & love, & a simple belief in the healing powers of nature. The spectacular pictures capture the atmosphere of the lake & the true personalities of the people & creatures who inhabit it.
