A new illustrated story celebrating the poppy's history. Michael
Morpurgo and Michael Foreman have teamed up with the Royal British
Legion to tell an original story that explains the meaning behind
the poppy. In Flanders' fields, young Martens knows his family's
story, for it is as precious as the faded poem hanging in their
home. From a poor girl comforting a grieving soldier, to an
unexpected meeting of strangers, to a father's tragic death many
decades after treaties were signed, war has shaped Martens's family
in profound ways - it is their history as much as any nation's.
They remember. They grieve. They honour the past. This book also
includes a full-colour, illustrated afterword that explains the
history that inspired the story. 1 per hardback from the sale of
POPPY FIELD in the UK will be paid to Royal British Legion Trading
Limited which gives its taxable profits to The Royal British Legion
