Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Publisher Annotation: A plucky robin, lost and alone, sets out on an epic journey, guided only by a call in his heart saying "come home!" He wills his wings to beat faster, lifting him over great mountains and dark forests, through blinding blizzards and rolling fog, across the wide, wild sea. Can he find his way back to his family in time for Christmas? Combined with Kerry Hyndman's striking illustrations of the red-breasted bird against a sweeping, snowy terrain, Michael Morpurgo's poetic narrative will stir any reader who has ever yearned to reunite with loved ones or welcome them home.
