From Britain's best-loved children's author, Michael Morpurgo and illustrator Emma Chichester Clark (author of Plumdog).The Best of Times is an uplifting Christmas story that plays on every last heart-string A story can bring love and laughter, sorrow and tears. But to save a life . . . that will require the greatest story of all. When the Prince and the Princess marry, joy rings out across the land. But all too soon it fades away and a shadow hangs over the royal palace. As Christmas approaches, Prince Frederico must find a way to warm his new bride's aching heart. A heart-warming Christmas adventure, that all the family can share. The perfect combination of magic, adventure and Christmas cheer - and makes an ideal festive stocking filler for kids aged 5 and up. Look out for Michael's other Christmas classics The Goose is Getting Fat, Mimi and the Mountain Dragon, The Best Christmas Present in the World and On Angel Wings.
