9781405226707: Escape from Shangri-La

When the strange man who has been watching their house turns out to be the grandfather she has never seen, eleven-year-old Cessie couldn't be happier -- at first sight. But then he has a stroke and actually has to come live with them. Popsicle, as she calls him, is impossible to live with: moody, forgetful, clumsy. Only Cessie loves him and believes in him. So when he is sent off to a home for the elderly, she helps him escape. And plays first mate to him on a dramatic nighttime boat trip across the English channel to unravel a secret only the two of them know. This Morpurgo story makes the reader want to cheer -- young people, the elderly, and courage at any age.

About the Author :

Michael Morpurgo is one of the most successful children's authors in the country, loved by children, teachers and parents alike. He has written more than forty books for children, including the global hit War Horse, which was made into a Hollywood film by Steven Spielberg in 2011. He has won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children's Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times.

From School Library Journal :

Grade 5-8-Eleven-year-old Cessie is thrilled when the elderly, rain-soaked tramp staring at her house turns out to be the grandfather she's never known. Her mother also accepts "Popsicle." Her father, who hasn't seen his dad since he was five years old, is less than enthusiastic. However, when the older man has a stroke and can't remember where he lives, Arthur relents and lets him stay with his family while he recuperates. Eventually, Cessie's parents place him in the Shangri-La nursing home. The girl then takes action, finding his home, an old lifeboat named Lucie Alice, and in it a faded photograph of a young French woman and a news clipping from which she learns that the boat had been part of the heroic evacuation of British soldiers from Dunkirk. These items help restore Popsicle's memory and renew his zeal for returning to France to find this woman who had hidden him from the Germans after he was jolted off the lifeboat. Cessie secretly accompanies her grandfather and several other escapees from Shangri-La on an improbable journey across the English Channel. Saddened to learn that the woman hasn't been seen since the Germans arrested her in 1940, Popsicle and his crew head back to England. The family is reunited on the dock and the story ends all neat and tidy. Too neat and tidy, in fact, as are many other contrived plot elements. Aside from Popsicle, the characters lack depth and are fed to readers in such a piecemeal fashion that it is difficult to identify with them and to rejoice at their eventual reunion.

Description du livre Egmont UK Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. État : New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. A gripping and heartfelt war story from War Horse author and former Children s Laureate, Michael Morpurgo. Turned away by his own son, Cessie s long-lost grandfather finds himself in the place he fears most - a nursing home called Shangri-La. Only Cessie loves him and is determined to help him escape and unravel the truth of his past. A past that comes to him only in glimpses - a lifeboat, a tin of condensed milk, a terrifying night on the beaches of Dunkirk in World War II .----- Former Children s Laureate Michael Morpurgo needs no introduction. He is one of the most successful children s authors in the country, loved by children, teachers and parents alike. Michael has written more than forty books for children including the global hit, War Horse, which was made into a Hollywood film by Steven Spielberg in 2011. Several of his other stories have been adapted for screen and stage, including My Friend Walter, Why the Whales Came and Kensuke s Kingdom. Michael has won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children s Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times.He started the charity Farms for City Children in 1976 with his wife, Clare, aimed at relieving the poverty of experience many young children feel in inner city and urban areas. Michael is also a patron of over a dozen other charities. Living in Devon, listening to Mozart and working with children have provided Michael with the ideas and incentive to write his stories. He spends half his life mucking out sheds with the children, feeding sheep or milking cows; the other half he spends dreaming up and writing stories for children. For me, the greater part of writing is daydreaming, dreaming the dream of my story until it hatches out - the writing down of it I always find hard. But I love finishing it, then holding the book in my hand and sharing my dream with my readers. Michael received an OBE in December 2006 for his services to literature.
