Private Peaceful
By Michael Morpurgo

Anyone who knows me, knows that my all time favourite author is Michael Morpurgo. His books are powerful and always very moving. He came out to New Zealand a few years ago and thundered out on to the stage, his voice booming and suddenly hundreds of students, teachers and librarians were in awe of this wonderful story teller.
This trailer is actually for the movie of his very popular book Private Peaceful. Those of you in the UK will get to see this way before we will here in New Zealand so I will be waiting to hear how it goes. If you haven’t read any of his books then I urge you to do so.
Private Peaceful is about two brothers out on the battle field trying to survive in World War 1. It is a story of love and loss and the horrors of war. I can not wait to see this movie.
