“Brilliant, fascinating and intriguing. Historical fiction at its most magnificent.” Jackie French
Praise for Michael Morpurgo:
“Michael Morpurgo writes brilliantly about war and animals, conveying the big emotions without preaching. The former children's laureate has the happy knack of speaking to both child and adult readers” Guardian
