"A Magical Michael Morpurgo Mystery"
Fantastic! Before reading this book, I thought it would be the best book in the world, and I was right! I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I highly recommend "Why the Whales Came" to anyone who enjoys stories that have suspense, even if you're not a Michael Morpurgo fan.
"Why the Whales Came" is about a little girl who has a next-door neighbour who is her best friend (a boy). They are severely told not to go near the birdman; but being children, they take no notice. I'll leave the rest for you to find out.
In contrast to other Michael Morpurgo books, this book has a lot more suspense. In this story they seem to find themselves nearly dying, but you'll have to find out how and why yourself.
I think "Why the Whales Came" is an older children's book (around 10-13) but I believe that if you like books that have mystery, then this book will be the book for you.
