Synopsis: 'There is no one-volume book in print that carries so much valuable information on London and its history.' Illustrated London News The London Encyclopaedia is the most comprehensive book on London ever published.

'Written in very accessible prose with a range of memorable quotations and affectionate jokes...a monumental achievement written with real love.' Financial Times 'If I had my way this book would be in every cab in London.' London Cabbie News

Poppy Field
By: MICHAEL MORPURGO
A new picture-book classic celebrating the poppy's history, from two legends of children's literature. Michael Morpurgo and Michael Foreman have teamed up with the Royal British Legion to tell an original story that explains the meaning behind the poppy.In Flanders' fields, young Martens knows his family's story, for it is as precious as the faded poem hanging in their home. From a poor girl comforting a grieving soldier, to an unexpected meeting of strangers, to a father's tragic death many decades after treaties were signed, war has shaped Martens's family in profound ways - it is their history as much as any nation's. They remember. They grieve. They honour the past. This book also includes a full-colour, illustrated afterword that explains the history that inspired the story.
