A story can bring love and laughter, sorrow and tears. But to save a life…that will require the greatest story of all. When the Prince and the Princess marry, the whole land is full of joy. But all too soon it fades and a shadow starts to hang over the royal palace. As Christmas approaches, Prince Frederico must find a way to warm his new bride’s aching heart.

The Best of Times is an uplifting Christmas story from Britain’s best-loved children’s author, former Children’s Laureate and award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo.

Illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark, this beautifully styled picture book is a true delight and ideal to read aloud with the family at Christmas time.
