The Lovereading4Kids comment
Double Laureate’s Michael Morpurgo and Quentin Blake have come together to produce a stunning re-working of the Nativity. It’s a wonderfully poignant and engaging story told with great warmth and humour coupled with some sparkling illustrations. This is an absolute must for bedtime reading and as a treasured edition to be savoured in years to come.
***Michael Morpurgo is reading On Angel Wings in a special Christmas concert on 20th December at St Luke's Church, Chelsea. You can buy tickets here.
***And there is also an charming animation of On Angel Wings to be shown on the BBC on Christmas Eve - you can find more information here.
On Angel Wings by Michael Morpurgo
One cold Christmas night, a shepherd recounts the magical story of how he came to be the first visitor to the newborn Christ child - ahead of the other shepherds, and in complete secret. A deftly wrought re-working of the nativity story, Michael's tale is rich in human detail. Quentin Blake's watercolour illustrations ooze energy and atmosphere and perfectly complement this poignant story.
