About this deal

Told from the point of view of Joey, a young farm horse who witnesses the reality of battle in the First World War , this is a powerful story of the strength of friendship in terrible situations. Michael Morpurgo has written more than one hundred books for children and won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children's Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times. J'ai maintenant comme ambition de vivre moi aussi aux côtés des yétis, avec la neige, les montagnes et les moutons.

Michael's books have been translated into many languages including Chinese, Bulgarian and Hungarian, Hebrew and Japanese. Eventually an opportunity to break free arises and he escapes but not without sadness for his Yeti friends. He started the charity Farms for City Children in 1976 with his wife, Clare, aimed at relieving the poverty of experience many young children feel in inner city and urban areas.Escaping from China as the Japanese invade, Ashley and Uncle Sung embark on a perilous journey across the Himalayas. When their boat sinks, and Omar finds himself alone, with no hope of rescue, it seems as if his story has come to an end. Overall it is a pleasant and easy read; a fantastical escape that never strays far from the harsh realities of loss for long, but is always embedded with a shard of hope. This small story throws light on the importance of empathy for others, and unbelievable animal instincts and brings home the importance of coexistence and caring for others.

David Wood, chair of Action for Children’s Arts, said Morpurgo is “one of our greatest storytellers”.

This book is about Ashley’s journey across China to find a safe home, it‘s a fantasy but one written so well it feels like it’s real.

Ashley is uncomfortable with this false position and leaves their warm companionship to continue his hard journey, all alone, across into India.

Soon they are inseparable, beloved by the whole village - safe, until the arrival of a glamorous film crew who need a dancing bear. He is also the author of WAR HORSE, which has been made into a Tony Award-winning Broadway play and a Golden Globe-nominated film. I would've also liked to have more information on Ashley's father , about whether he was alive at the very end of the book . On their summer holidays in Wales, Michael and his little cousin Polly are told magical tales by an old Russian sea captain. But Tips, Lily's adored cat, has other ideas – barbed wire and the danger of guns and bombs mean nothing to her.
