Praise for ‘Private Peaceful’:
‘Tommo’s journey from agricultural labourer to cannon fodder is movingly told…Michael Morpurgo is expert at getting through to his readers. He writes here about events that should never be forgotten nor forgiven, and does so most effectively.’ Independent
‘Deserved to last as an insight into the First World War in the same way as, say, The Silver Sword or Goodnight Mr Tom.’ Telegraph
Praise for ‘Toro! Toro!’:
‘A tale about another country and another time that resonates with the here and now… Once again, Morpurgo demonstrates his talent for stories of absolute clarity about big events.’ Sunday Times
‘A poignant tale, simply told, about the horror of the Spanish Civil War and the noble cruelty of bullfighting.’ Sunday Telegraph
Praise for ‘The Butterfly Lion’
‘Will touch all hearts – both young and old.’ Virginia McKenna, Born Free Foundation
