By Various; Introduction by Morpurgo, Michael
A collection of favourite classic children's poems introduced by acclaimed author, Michael Morpurgo.
Adapted by Ledwich, Anna; By Morpurgo, Michael
When Bertie is sent away from the African farm of his childhood to school in England, he leaves behind not only his beloved mother and the beautiful land, swarming with wildlife, but also his best friend - a white lion he rescued as a cub. Bertie's struggle to adjust to his new l...ife in harsh, grey England is alleviated only by a chance friendship with the equally lonely Millie and his dreams of his treasured lion, now trapped in a French circus. But their remarkable journey is only just beginning, and the pair are destined to meet again. The Butterfly Lion combines music, design and puppetry to bring a magical adventure to life: celebrating nature, friendship and the triumph of love. Based on Michael Morpurgo's best-selling novel, which won the Smarties Prize and the Writers' Guild Award, this stage adaptation was commissioned by Chichester Festival Theatre and written by Chichester Festival Theatre's Writer-in-Residence Anna Ledwich.Read more
