Poppy Field Book Release

On Monday 8 October, Sir Michael Morpurgo visited the The Poppy Factory in Richmond to mark the release of his new book, 'Poppy Fields'.

The book from Scholastic commemorates the centenary of WW1 in association with The Royal British Legion's Thank You movement. During the launch, Sir Michael also met the veterans who work there, and a group of local school children.

This incredibly special new book written by Michael Morpurgo touches on the history of the poppy with a poignant yet accessible story and Michael Foreman’s stunning illustrations bring to life this touching story about the effects of World War I on four generations of a family living in Flanders.

The book is available in book stores nationwide and £1 from every book will also be donated to The Royal British Legion.
