This review is from: Dear Mr Morpingo: Inside the World of Michael Morpurgo (Paperback)
How perfect that the biography of Michael Morpurgo; one of the best authors of children's stories is written for children. Anyone who enjoys the wonderful books that Michael Morporgu writes will love this refreshing look at his life.
Probably aimed at readers aged 9 and upwards, it will be enjoyed by his adult fans too.
Geoff Fox has portrayed this wonderful storyteller so well, the style of the book is that of a story too. Starting with Morpurgo's early life and his experience at boarding school which played a very big part in his adult life and especially in some of his novels. The second part of the book concentrates on Morpurgo's novels, what made him write them, how he plans his writing and how he gets the feel for his characters and the settings of the stories.
Tucked away at the back of the book is a previously unpublished short story called 'The Story That Wrote Itself' as an added bonus.
I enjoyed finding out about of of my favourite authors and I think children will love this book too. Geoff Fox has made Morpurgo's story almost as exciting as one of his novels

Great book for kids... Good questions. Bought for my year 6 class to read. They love his writings so to read the letters and responses was brilliant and informative.
