Where My Wellies Take Me

Michael Morpurgo

Pippa, a young English girl, explores the countryside and shares her favorite activities: walking, horseback riding, poetry, observing animals, and celebrating holidays. In various journal entries she writes (in cursive!) her notes and favorite poems (in Times New Roman font) She includes poetry from Ted Hughes, Kipling, Walter de la Mare and others. The scrapbook effect is created by Olivia Gill's mixed-media paintings and sketches of animals, nature, and quaint village buildings. English Children's laureate Michael Morpurgo (author of War Horse) and his wife Clare have collaborated in this beautiful volume celebrating poetry and nature. Ages 8-12
