September 2012 MEGA Book of the Month.Best-selling author Michael Morpurgo’s touching story of a young girl’s exploration of the countryside provides a lyrical link for this rich and varied collection of poems about the countryside which have been selected by Michael Morpurgo and his wife Clare.

Following the story provides a path and introduction to each; they can also be readily appreciated by dipping in and finding familiar and unfamiliar gems. Beautifully produced, the illustrations throughout the book capture the changing seasons and changing moods of the countryside in what becomes, overall, a glorious celebration.


Where My Wellies Take Me Synopsis

Pippa loves staying with her Aunty Peggy. She loves going for walks, whether it's sunshiney or cold - long, wandering walks where her wellies take her. Follow Pippa into the beautiful countryside as her day unfolds, and the wildlife, animals and people she encounters are complemented by relevant poems from some of our greatest authors, personally chosen by Clare and Michael Morpurgo. Part poetry anthology, part child's scrapbook, this is a truly lavish project designed to instil a love of language in young children.
