Εκδότης Egmont , ISBN 9781405284592

Renowned children's author Michael Morpurgo teams up with bestselling illustrator Jim Field in this stunning Christmas picture book. Dearest little Mia, This Christmas, instead of a Christmas card - you'll have plenty of those - and instead of a present - you'll have plenty of those too, I am sending you a letter . .

. Every Christmas Mia and her family read a letter which her Grandpa wrote to her. His letter is a warm, impassioned and heartfelt wish for a better world for Mia to live in.

He remembers fondly the times they spent in his garden finding frogs and worms and planting seeds. But Grandpa worries that all the things they love so much are in danger . .

. His letter is a hopeful plea to Mia (and to all of us) to continue to care for and protect our precious world. Michael Morpurgo frames his powerful message about protecting the environment in this beautiful personal story about a grandpa's wish for his granddaughter to live in a better world.

This vital and timely story is paired with Jim Field's emotive illustrations in this gorgeous Christmas picture book, perfect for the whole family to share. Michael Morpurgo is a master storyteller who has written over one hundred books and won countless awards. In 1976 Michael and his wife Clare started the charity Farms For City Children, which aims to relieve the poverty of experience of young children from inner city and urban areas.

In 1999 they were awarded the MBE for their work in creating these farms and in 2006 Michael received an OBE. His novel War Horse has been adapted into a hugely successful and critically acclaimed West End play as well as a film adaptation directed by Steven Spielberg. Michael is a tireless champion for children's books and was formerly the Children's Laureate.

Morpurgo, Michael

Συγγραφέας

Ο Michael Morpurgo γεννήθηκε το 1943 στην Αγγλία. Σπούδασε αγγλική και γαλλική φιλολογία στο Πανεπιστήμιο του Λονδίνου και στη συνέχεια δούλεψε ως δάσκαλος για δέκα χρόνια. Ανάμεσα στους μαθητές του ανακάλυψε ότι αυτό που πραγματικά ήθελε να κάνει ήταν να γράφει ιστορίες για παιδιά. Σήμερα είναι ένας από τους γνωστότερους Άγγλους συγγραφείς για παιδιά αφού περισσότερα από ενενήντα βιβλία του έχουν εκδοθεί και έχουν μεταφραστεί σε πάνω από 26 γλώσσες. Επίσης πέντε από τα βιβλία του έχουν γυριστεί σε κινηματογραφικές και τηλεοπτικές ταινίες. Πολλά από τα βιβλία του έχουν τιμηθεί με σημαντικά βραβεία όπως το Whitbread Children's Book of the Year Award, το Smarties Prize, το Children's Book of the Year Award, το Cercle D'or και το Prix Sorciere στη Γαλλία, το A.L.A. Best Book of the Year στις Η.Π.Α., και το The Silver Pencil στην Ολλανδία. Επίσης ο Μορπούργκο έχει υπάρξει Children's Laureate (2003-2005) ενώ του έχει απονεμηθεί η περίβλεπτη τιμή του OBE το 2006 για τη συνολική προσφορά του στο χώρο των γραμμάτων. Σήμερα ζει με τη γυναίκα του στο Ντέβον, έχει τρία παιδιά και τέσσερα εγγόνια.
