Reviews

"A master storyteller at his best" The Sunday Times "From the first sentence of a Michael Morpurgo book, you know you are in the hands of a natural storyteller." Guardian "Classic Morpurgo brilliance" Bookseller's choice, Publishing News "...a succinctly engaging tear-jerker, it is also full of happiness and affection and has a joyful ending... It is also about people who care enough to look after each other, offering a lesson in life as well as history. Sunday Times, Children's Book of the Week "...Michael Morpurgo weaves a touching tale that's full of surprises. A master storyteller at his best." Funday Times "As always, Morpurgo writes with solid confidence in a voice that's gentle yet spellbinding." Evening Standard 'Praise for PRIVATE PEACEFUL: Tommo's journey from agricultural labourer to cannon fodder is movingly told...Michael Morpurgo is expert at getting through to his readers. He writes here about events that should never be forgotten nor forgiven, and does so most effectively. Independent ...full of warmth as well as grief, conveying vividly how precious it is to be alive... Sunday Times The best novel he's written since The Butterfly Lion. The Times Deserved to last as an insight into the First World War in the same way as, say, The Silver Sword or Goodnight Mr Tom. Telegraph A poignant, elegiac novel. Daily Mail
