5.0 out of 5 stars Just wonderful!, 3 Nov. 2011
I have read this book to both my children when they were studying World War 2 at school. They both loved it. I loved it both times and cried both times. It is a wonderful story about an extraordinary time, some ordinary people and the beautiful journey they take across 60 years. Thank you, Mr Morpurgo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!, 29 Sept. 2011
Anne Taintor's theme is 'making smart people laugh' well, I like to think of myself as smart(ish) and I certainly did laugh!! With a new picture every week it shall make my 2012 a sunnier place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just wonderful!, 29 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Billy the Kid (Paperback)
Have just finished reading this to my 8 year old son who is studying World War 2 this term. I sobbed my way through the final third of the book - as I do with most of Michael Morpurgo's books. A perfect read and a perfect introduction for some of the more terrible events of the last century which cannot be ignored, however painful they are to address with your own children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horrible History, 28 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Between Shades Of Gray (Paperback)
I bought this for my teenage daughter but have read it before her. It is a harrowing, fascinating look at a part of history I know very little about. I've warned her that it's a real Horrible History but without the funny bits. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good try!, 15 April 2011
This review is from: Rebecca's Tale (Paperback)
Good try but 'Wide Sargasso Sea' it isn't. If this is meant to be a feminist/Freudian take on Rebecca (one of my favourite books) then it certainly makes you think; why was Rebecca the monster du Maurier portrays, is stuffy old Max as much to blame as anyone, what about Rebecca's past - how much did it damage her, and what about Maxim's past? And so on but it doesn't really answer any of them in a satisfactory way. Feminist/Freudian rereadings are all very worthy and well meaning but, let's be honest, the original gothic creations are so much more fun!
