A new picture-book classic celebrating the poppy's history,

from two legends of children's literature. 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.
