Escape from Shangri-La
Michael Morpurgo is a master storyteller, former Children's Laureate and multi-award winner.
This is a fresh reissue of a much-loved story with a beautiful new cover. 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, and, a terrifying night on the beaches of Dunkirk in World War II.
