Summary
"A robin redbreast in the garden is a common enough sight at Christmas time. We love to see them. Until I wrote this story I thought robins lived all year round in our gardens. Some do. But some travel hundreds of miles from the North, over snowy mountains and stormy oceans, to winter in our gardens. And often they are coming home, back to the very same garden where they were born. Like them, so many of us make the long journey home for Christmas. So this Christmas, look out for a robin. We have more in common than we realise"-- Michael Morpurgo
Summary
A plucky little robin sets out on an epic journey. Through dark forests, driving rain, clapping thunder and flashing lightning. Across frozen wastes, huge mountains and stormy seas he flies. And all the while he's dreaming of home. Of her. But will he ever get there?
