In West Lothian - Book fairies hide Michael Morpurgo's A Song of Gladness around the UK

Michael Morpurgo’s Children’s Book A Song Of Gladness Hidden by The Book Fairies

With a spring in our step and a song in our hearts, book fairies hid this delightful new picture book from Michael Morpurgo and Emily Gravett!

We absolutely loved the chance to get this book out in the WILD – full of wild animals, it’s where the book belongs! So many children were excited to find a copy this weekend.

Book fairies sought out statues of animals, trees covered with blossoms, playgrounds and more – to ensure that they were found by lucky little book finders! With an eye catching cover and gold writing, they didn’t hang around for long! Most book fairies only got a little way away before their copy was found by a happy family!

About the book:

Travel the globe in this inspiring journey through the animal kingdom. A Song of Gladness is a timely reminder of the beauty and importance of the natural world from two of today’s most celebrated children’s book creators.

From a blackbird in a Devon garden to leopards in the African savanna, hibernating bears and chimpanzees high in the forest canopy, A Song of Gladness reminds us all of our connection with nature, and with each other, and the urgent need for us to join together in caring for the planet and every creature in it.

Former Children’s Laureate and CILIP Carnegie Medal winner Sir Michael Morpurgo’s beautiful story is both moving and full of hope; the illustrations from twice CILIP Kate Greenaway-winning Emily Gravett are breathtaking. This gorgeous book is a classic in the making and the perfect gift for any animal and nature lover.

Some lucky finders!

We are always delighted to hear from lucky finders, but it does feel even more special when those finders are children! These little ones are clearly delighted not only to find a book, but also that it’s such a beautiful one!
