A beautiful hardback edition of the nation's favourite storyteller Michael Morpurgo's Listen to the Moon is a stunning tour de force of family, love, war and forgiveness.
Alfie and his father find a girl on an uninhabited beach, with no memory of who she is or how she came to be there. She can only say one word: Lucy. Is she a mermaid, a German U-boat victim, or worse - a German spy? All that is true is that she loves music and moonlight and that when she listens to the glimmering gramophone, the girl she once was starts to reappear... But World War I is raging on and fear and suspicion put Alfie and Lucy under threat. And the introduction of Merry brings a new melody to the great composition...
A must-read for fans of War Horse and Private Peaceful, Michael Morpurgo's new book Listen to the Moon will delight readers aged 9 and above as they immerse themselves in his emotive writing.
