The General by Janet Charters, Michael Foreman

Can a general who was once ruthless learn to spread peace and love? A stunning new edition of Michael Foreman’s debut picture book.

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 longtime fans and new readers alike.
