Praise for Michael Morpurgo:
“Michael Morpurgo writes brilliantly about war and animals, conveying the big emotions without preaching.” Guardian
“Champagne quality over a wide range of subjects.” Daily Telegraph
“There are few children’s writers as compelling as Michael Morpurgo.” Daily Express
“Morpurgo, as always, is subtle and skilful, and incorporates social and moral issues into his writing without being self-righteous or detracting from the quality of the narrative”
Elizabeth Reilly, British Council
“The former children's laureate has the happy knack of speaking to both child and adult readers.” Guardian
