The Best Christmas Present in the World , ,

One of the most heart-warming stories you’ll read around war, this is a classic Christmas story from the bestselling author/illustrator team of Michael Morpurgo and Michael Foreman.  The story is told through a letter found by chance in an antique desk, which brings one soldier’s experience of WW1 hauntingly to life.

The story centers on of one of the most poignant events of WW1, the Christmas Truce, in which both sides came out of the trenches to share a drink and rations, then played a game of football before returning to their trenches again.
