March is Michael Morpurgo Month, a celebration of one of the best storytellers (and one of my favourite authors). Organised by Michael Morpurgo’s publisher, it is a chance to highlight the many wonderful stories that Michael has written. He has written so many wonderful stories that tug at the heart-strings of young and old. I have read many of Michael’s books because I love the way that he tells a story. You feel like he is sitting in the room with you, telling you the story.
I have reviewed a few of Michael Morpurgo’s books here on the blog and I’ll be highlighting these over the next couple of weeks. HarperCollins have also created some wonderful videos of Michael talking about his work that you can watch right here. Michael talks about animals, journeys, war and legends.
