Format: Paperback
Overall I think My Friend Walter is a great novel! There are so many surprises along the way from the very beginning to the very end of this exiting adventure! I'd recommend it to anyone, young and old alike. Not only is the book full of fun, laughter and mischief, but Morpurgo also teachs you the importance of friendship along the way.
Too cut a long story short, here is a brief idea of the storyline! A girl called Bess goes to a party, where she meets an old man. This old man isn't just any old man, but a ghost! The ghost if Sir Walter Raleigh. Walter gets Bess to free him him from the Bloody Tower and convices her to take him hometo the farm she lives on. On the farm Bess and Walter get up to all sorts of mischief and all is well. Until disaster strikes! Bess and her family have to sell up and leave the farm. But Walter has a trick up his sleeve! To discover it I'll leavde it up to you to read Morpurgo's book.

I thought that my friend Walter is a fantastic book for 10 to 14 yr olds because it has a great story and lots of surprising twists and turns. It is the kind of book that makes you gasp and hold your breath. At the end of the book I couldn't stop smiling.

Once again Micheal Morpurgo has definitely impressed me!

I enjoyed this story very much and loved learning some history along the way. The style is straightforward and clear and would suit a wide range of readers. To get five stars I would have wanted something more intricate and inferential with more development of the characters.

The children at the school where I work have just finished reading 'My Friend Walter' as a class, and I was as hooked on it as they were.
The characters are all brought to life beautifully, with interesting and witty observations of how life would have been for Sir Walter Raleigh. The children probably learnt far more about Raleigh from reading this story than they would have done from a textbook of facts, and they extended their knowledge into classroom activities and writing techniques.
I missed the last chapter due to illness, and I was so keen not to miss out, that I had to borrow a copy from school to finish it at home!

This book is an excellent read from front page to the closing page - I whole heartedly recommend it. Michael Morpurgo has single handedly changed my Grandson from a reluctant reader to an avid reader. Thank you Mr Morpurgo you are a genius

My son loves all of his books and this author has encouraged him to read. Many of the stories are fact based so my son is also learning and remembering much about history of the wars and other historical events. Great stories and a real boost for children to enjoy reading.

My son enjoyed this book because of the mystery, the way the author laid out the story and because the characters suited their roles very well. It was historically informative but still moved at a good pace. Definitely worth a read.
