Meeting Cézanne

Michael Morpurgo

From the writer of 'War Horse' comes a steady, evocative tale of a tender urban boy’s summer season in Nineteen Sixties rural Provence.

He has hardly been out of Paris, and if the work in his mother’s loved Cézanne publication are to be believed, without doubt Provence is paradise itself. So starts an idyllic month for the younger urban boy: roaming the mild hills and rolling valleys and having a pipe dream approximately his attractive cousin Amandine; assisting at his aunt and uncle’s bustling village hotel; feeling that he has come to the main significant position on the planet. yet one night the spell is damaged whilst a major neighborhood comes for dinner and Yannick by accident destroys a valuable drawing the fellow leaves at the back of. How can the devastated Yannick make issues correct back — and what unbelievable discoveries could come of it?
