An Eagle in the Snow

An Eagle in the Snow

By: Michael Morpurgo

If you are a history buff like me, or are just looking for a fast read then you will love this powerful adventurous novel that was inspired by the true story of one man who cough have stopped World War II. ”1940. The train is under attacks from German fighters. In the darkness, sheltering in a railway tunnel, the stranger in the carriage with Barney and his mother tells them a story to help pass the time.”   The story is of a young friend of his. A man during World War I who though he was doing something right to help win the war, but it turned out to be one of the worst mistakes in his life.  Can his friend fix his mistake before it is too late?

This novel would be great for a teacher to use in a World History class.   The author has provided a Teaching Resource Kit that you are able to print off from his website.

”Winner of the Children’s Book Awards 2017.

I highly recommend for children between the ages 7-11.
