A heartwarming short story set on a farm from Michael Morpurgo, the nation's favourite children's author, with stunning illustrations from Quentin Blake.
Published to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of Farms for City Children, the charity founded by Michael and his wife Clare, Didn’t We Have a Lovely Time! is based on the true story of a boy whose confidence and speech returns after meeting a very special horse down on the farm.
Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved illustrators of our time, and his books with a wide range of authors, including Joan Aiken, Russell Hoban, Michael Rosen and Roald Dahl, have been treasured by generations of children throughout the world. In 1999 he became the first Children's Laureate. In 2005 he was awarded a CBE, and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration. Quentin lives in London.
