The General

By Janet Charters
Illustrated by Michael Foreman

As relevant as when it was first published, Michael Foreman's very first book is beautifully reissued in this edition.

There once was a general who fell off his horse, only to discover the beauty of flowers and nature. From that day on, he vowed to change the world around him by embracing peace. Created in 1961 — and retaining the essence of that decade — this picture book illustrated by three-time Kate Greenaway Medal winner Michael Foreman is lovingly restored in a beautiful edition sure to appeal to long-time fans and new readers alike.
