Apologies for the lack of updates, Christmas preparations got the better of me. But as Christmas comes ever closer, try and find some time to curl up with the kids (by the fire is preferable since it’s so cold at the moment) and indulge in a little fairy story by the evangelical (in my eyes) Michael Morpurgo.
The Best of Times is a charming story of a Prince who really does care for his sad Princess. It’s a lovely old time tale of chivalry and reminds us that people need caring for and we must not lay idly by as people are sad. What makes this story however are the illustrations by Emma Chichester-Clark. She is most famed for her classis stories of Blue Kangaroo and her style is fast becoming as recognizable as dear Quentin Blake’s.
The book is a small little hardbook and an easy read, available in all book stores. ISBN: 9781405232555
