5.0 out of 5 stars A 'Roaring Success!', 28 Nov. 2007
This review is from: The Butterfly Lion (Paperback)
My 6-year old son loved this book. He really enjoyed reading about the old-lady's life, going back in time and the mystery of where the lion went. He was keen to get to bed at night so he could keep on reading. This book sparked his interest in all things Morpurgo. It's great for a young child beginning to read chapter books by themselves, before starting Morpurgo's other books that have deeper, more mature themes. As a family, we all loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Marvellous Morpurgo, 28 Nov. 2007
This book changed my 9 year-old sons attitude to reading. Usually more into factual books, he loved the mix of mini-stories and real life accounts. He says the book made him have great dreams as he could picture himself in so many of the stories, particularly the excerpt of 'I believe in Unicorns'. Now he is crazy about all Morpurgo's books. If your child is reluctant to read, these short chapters are a great way to start an interest in the fabulous tales Morpurgo creates.
