Michael Morpurgo
For the month of November schools and libraries in the UK are celebrating Michael Morpurgo’s 70th birthday. Oh How I would love to be in the UK right now!
He writes the most wonderful stories for children and often pulls no punches when it comes to hitting us with raw emotion. I have cried over so many of his books but am in awe of his ability to take me places and leave me right in the middle of it all.
There are far too many books to mention but some of my favourites are:
Running wild
War horse
I believe in unicorns (all time fave)

In my day job as school librarian he is always at the top of books being issued. In this video he talks about how and why so many of his books have animals in them and not for the reasons you might think!

Michael Morpurgo talks about war in his novels and why it is a common thread in his books.
