I first discovered Michael Morpurgo when my daughter was about seven years old and came home from school with one of his books - it was 'Why The Whales Came' and is included in this set.
He has such a stunning way with words! He draws you so deep into his stories that you get totally swept away into the world and lives that you're reading about.
He writes in such a way that you can't help but conjure up the most vivid mental images and go on a breathtaking journey with the characters in the books.
I love this, from The Book People blurb...
Whether he's writing about retired greyhounds, adventurous cats or soldiers and horses in the trenches, with Mr Morpurgo you're guaranteed a wonderful read every time!
...and they're absolutely right, you really won't go wrong with a Michael Morpurgo book at bedtime , or any time for that matter.
Be warned - these sell out FAST! All together they should cost £84.99 but they're up for grabs for just £16.99 and if you use this code - AGT040 - you'll get free delivery too; brill!
