Bestselling children's author Michael Morpurgo and illustrator Michael Foreman, alongside the Royal British Legion, present a beautifully illustrated story which celebrates the poppy and everything it stands for in the past on Flanders fields, continuing to the present day.
From a poor girl comforting a grieving soldier to a tragic death many years later, accompany Martens in Flanders fields as he remembers his family's story, which has been profoundly shaped by war.
This book also includes a fully illustrated afterword explaining the history that inspired the story - a story which reminds us of the symbolism of remembrance and the poppy.
