IN THE MOUTH OF THE WOLF PB

Morpurgo, Michael

Εκδότης Egmont , ISBN 9781405293402

A true story of two brothers and the war that changed everything. Michael Morpurgo's wonderful storytelling and Barroux's stunning artwork combine to tell the true story of Michael's uncles against the epic backdrop of World War Two. Francis and Pieter are brothers.

As shadow of one war lingers, and the rumbles of another approach, the brothers argue. Francis is a fierce pacifist, while Pieter signs up to fight. What happens next will change the course of Francis's life forever .

. . and throw him into the mouth of the wolf.

---Michael Morpurgo has written over one hundred books and won many 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. Michael is a tireless champion for children's books and was formerly the Children's Laureate. Born in Paris, Barroux spent much of his childhood in North Africa.

He later attended art school in France. He received widespread critical acclaim for Line of Fire, Diary of An Unknown Soldier (Phoenix Yard) and Alpha (Barrington Stoke). In 2015 Barroux won the first Parents, Babies, a Book competition for his work Chuut! which will be given to every baby in the north of France.

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.
