[In] Morpurgo's cozy, well-executed British novel...magic enters the novel at an appropriate moment, and the conclusion is sweet.-- "Publishers Weekly"
About the Author
Michael Morpurgo, former Children's Laureate of Britain, is the author of War Horse, called ""superb"" by the New York Times Book Review and now a major motion picture. His other prizewinning books include Kensuke's Kingdom, Private Peaceful, and The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips. Morpurgo lives in Devon, England, with his wife, Clare. Together they founded the charity Farms for City Children, which gives children from urban areas an opportunity to spend a week working on a farm in the countryside.

I highly recommend getting the 2011 Collector's Edition, which comes elegantly hardbound and with evocative illustrations by Christian Birmingham. (Note: I do not know if Mr. Birmingham's illustrations are also included in other editions of the book.) Between Mr. Morpurgo's magical prose and Mr. Birmingham's haunting illustrations, I felt as if I could see a film of the story in my mind while I was reading. This book would make an excellent movie; think of Winter's Tale meets Born Free and War Horse -- and beyond.
All in all, I wholeheartedly recommend The Butterfly Lion to story lovers young and old alike. Give yourself a couple of hours to curl up with this book and be transported by this moving, lyrical, haunting, magical tale. You'll be tremendously glad you did.
