COMING HOME, by Michael Morpurgo, Illustrated by Kerry Hyndman, Candlewick Press


A plucky little robin sets out on an epic journey. Through dark forests, driving rain, clapping thunder and flashing lightning. Across frozen wastes, huge mountains and stormy seas he flies. And all the while he’s dreaming of home. Of her. But will he ever get there? Find out in this wonderfully lyrical Christmas story from the brilliant Michael Morpurgo, with stunning illustrations by Kerry Hyndman.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

This is a gorgeous picture book, hardcover with a book jacket. Both the book jacket and the front hardcover have the same artwork.  I love the illustrations, the birds are especially drawn nicely.  Easy to read sentences for the early readers with the help of mom or dad are present as are full page illustrations.  A wonderful story about family and home.

The story is so sweet and perfect for the holiday season.
