From master storyteller Michael Morpurgo and award-winning artist Barroux comes a true story of bravery, sadness and hope, set against the backdrop of World War Two.
A true story of two brothers and the war that changed everything.
Michael Morpurgo's wonderful storytelling and Barroux's stunning artwork combine to tell the true story of Michael's uncles during World War Two.
Francis and Pieter are brothers. As shadow of one war lingers, and the rumbles of another approach, the brothers argue. Francis is a fierce pacifist, while Pieter signs up to fight. What happens next will change the course of Francis's life forever . . . and throw him into the mouth of the wolf.
A great way of introducing young readers to the realities of World War Two. Look out for Morpurgo's other war fiction including War Horse, Friend or Foe, Waiting for Anya, King of the Cloud Forest and An Eagle in the Snow.
In the Mouth of the Wolf is a heart-felt true story of family and courage by a writer who 'has the happy knack of speaking to both child and adult readers' (The Guardian).
