An Eagle in the Snow by Michael Morpurgo

November 22, 2015




The powerful new novel from the master storyteller – inspired by the true
story of one man who might have stopped World War II.

1940. The train is under attacks from German fighters. In the darkness, sheltering in a railway tunnel, the stranger in the carriage with Barney and his mother tells them a story to pass the time.
And what a story. The story of a young man, a young soldier in the trenches of World War I who, on the spur of the moment, had done what he thought was the right thing.
It turned out to have been the worst mistake he ever could have made – a mistake he must put right before it is too late…

A brand new fiction title from the Nation’s Favourite Storyteller and author of WAR HORSE, Michael Morpurgo

• Listen to the Moon was shortlisted for a Costa Book Award
• Michael Morpurgo’s English Language sales exceed 34 million copies
• Michael’s UK sales exceed 5 million copies (TCM Bookscan, 2013)
• War Horse and Private Peaceful books have been made into films establishing
Michael Morpurgo as a household name internationally

Michael Morpurgo is one of Britain’s best-loved writers for children. 
He has written over 100 books and won many prizes, including the Smarties Prize, the Blue Peter Book Award and the Whitbread Award. 
His recent bestselling novels include ‘Listen to the Moon’, ‘A Medal for Leroy’ and ‘Shadow’. 
His novel ‘War Horse’ has been successfully adapted as a West End and Broadway theatre play and a major film by Steven Spielberg. 
A former Children’s Laureate, Michael is also the co-founder, with his wife Clare, of the charity Farms for City Children.

Praise for An Eagle in the Snow
“Brilliant, fascinating and intriguing. Historical fiction at its most magnificent.” Jackie French Praise for Michael Morpurgo

“Michael Morpurgo writes brilliantly about war and animals, conveying the big emotions without preaching. The former children’s laureate has the happy knack of speaking to both child and adult readers” Guardian

“Morpurgo, as always, is subtle and skilful, and incorporates social and moral issues into his writing without being self-righteous or detracting from the quality of the narrative” Elizabeth Reilly, British Council



My Review:
If you shed a tear in the War Horse, expect nothing less in this book. Brilliantly written, Michael Morpurgo grabs your emotions and let you know that there are more emotions, beyond those and they need to be explored, because his description in narrative is absolutely amazing!
Definitely a must have and read book for any lover of Historic wars and animals.
