Coming Home (Early Reader)

A lyrical wintry delight by a master storyteller, beautifully illustrated with dramatic colour pictures. Follow a brave robin’s epic journey through dark forests, wild storms and frozen mountains. Will he get home in time for Christmas? He flies through driving rain, clapping thunder and flashing lighting. He’s lost at sea, and saved, and on he flies. All the while he’s dreaming of home – of her. But will he arrive in time to hear the Christmas bells ring out?

  • A truly magical festive story by a king of writers
  • Bold colour artwork full of atmosphere and drama
  • Lyrical, poetic text with strong rhythm and repetition
  • Perfect for sharing or for newly independent readers

“Michael Morpurgo has crafted this tale with all his skill and all his love and respect for animals and the way we interact with them. It’s a real delight.” Philip Pullman
