Coming Home by Michael Morpugo - OPTIONAL

Coming Home by Michael Morpugo, illustrated by Kerry Hyndman.  PICTURE BOOK.  Candlewick, 2018.  $18. 9781536200423



A male is robin has started his long journey home. He’ll encounter dangers along the way, but he hopes to be reunited with his mate.

The beginning, in fact most of the book is written in beautiful poetic rhythm that begs to be read out loud.  Why, oh why, then does it fall flat and clunky on the last two pages?  Crash – I fell right out in love with it.  The illustrations are on point beautiful – a redeeming quality.
