Michael Morpurgo

Standard

Amazing! Quite the most moving event in a long while. Fabulous to have met an icon of children’s literature and to discover he is just delightful. We all sang the theme from War Horse, heard how it came to be written and had a lump in our throats as we listened to great stories of WW1 and how various other books of the 134 books that is Michael Morpurgo’s oevre came to be written. Some story or meeting with a particular person has sparked them all off. He recommended a visit to the Museum at Ypres as he considers it one of the best places to learn about WW1.
I gave the vote of thanks to him at the end.
