On Angel Wings is a beautifully poignant and atmospheric Christmas story from Britain's best-loved children's author, Michael Morpurgo. One cold Christmas night, a shepherd recounts the magical story of how he came to be the first visitor to the newborn Christ child - ahead of the other shepherds, and in complete secret. A deftly wrought re-working of the nativity story from former Children's Laureate and award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo. Michael's tale is rich in human detail and Quentin Blake's watercolour illustrations ooze energy in this delightful picture book.
Michael Morpurgo, the last Children's Laureate, has written more than forty books and won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children's Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times. He is a tireless champion for children's books and was recently created Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the French government. Quentin Blake's illustration has now taken on iconic status and is famous throughout the world. The inaugural children's laureate, he is one of our best-loved advocates for everything to do with the children's book.
