The Goose is Getting Fat is a beautiful Christmas story from the genius of War Horse author Michael Morpurgo, beautifully illustrated by A Flower in the Snow illustrator, Sophie Allsopp. Gertrude the goose is getting bigger by the day, and Charlie is proud to look after her. But as Christmas approaches, the thought of the grizzly fate awaiting her fills him with sadness. Can he save Gertrude from the Christmas dinner table? A heart-warming Christmas adventure, that all the family can share. The perfect combination of magic, adventure and Christmas cheer - and makes an ideal festive stocking filler for kids aged 5 and up. Look out for Michael's other Christmas classics Mimi and the Mountain Dragon, The Best of Times, The Best Christmas Present in the World and On Angel Wings.

Michael has written more than a hundred books and 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. Sophie Allsop has published books with the likes of Joe Berger and Ali Pye. Sophie grew up in Hong Kong where she particularly enjoyed living in a hotel and going to school on a tram.
