A lavish, keepsake collection of poetry, beautiful artwork, and unforgettable treasures from acclaimed children's book author Michael Morpurgo, woven around a girl's adventures on a countryside walk.

Pippa loves staying with her Aunty Peggy. She loves going for walks, whether it is sunny or cold - long, wandering walks where her wellies take her. Follow Pippa into the beautiful countryside as her day unfolds, and the wildlife, animals, and people she encounters are complemented by relevant poems from some of our greatest authors, personally chosen by Clare and Michael Morpurgo. Part poetry anthology, part children's scrapbook, this is a truly lavish project designed to instill a love of language in young children.

Editorial Reviews

[A] beautiful volume celebrating nature and verse in its most splendid quietude.
-Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Charming... Those who remember lazy days spent picking dandelions and hunting crawdads may close the cover with the urge to knock the mud off their boots.
-The Chicago Tribune
