The Snow Goose is a poetic and deeply moving story which is universally associated with the evacuation of Dunkirk in World War Two. It concerns a disfigured, solitary man who lives in an abandoned lighthouse, and a village girl who brings a wounded goose to him. The understanding which grows between the man and the girl; the wildness of their surroundings; the almost mystical presence of the goose; the heroic Dunkirk adventure, and the poignant ending of this twentieth century classic leave a lasting memory in the mind of the reader.
Edition with illustrations by Peter Scott.
"Never was there a more masterful fusion of story and illustration, both beguilingly simple, so beautifully imagined, so wonderfully observed." Michael Morpurgo (War Horse)
