Poppy Field

Author(s): Michael Morpurgo

Middle Fiction

A new wartime classic from two legends of children's literature! As the world commemorates the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, Michael Morpurgo and Michael Foreman have teamed up with the British Legion to tell a new story inspired by the history of the poppy.  When John McCrae wrote his famous poem "In Flanders Field" among the trenches of war-torn Belgium, neither he nor a local village girl who saves a discarded draft of it could know what enormous power that poem would have on generations to come.
