Synopsis

Three gripping war stories from the front line of children's fiction from Britain's best-loved children's author, Michael Morpurgo.







This superb collection of war stories includes:







War Horse







In 1914, Joey, a young farm horse, is sold to the army and thrust into the midst of the war on the Western Front.







Friend or Foe







Evacuated from London, David and Tucky feel like the war is a long way away from their new life. Then one night the skyline of the moor is lit up with gun flashes, and the distant crump of bombing . . .







Waiting for Anya







It is World War II and Jo stumbles on a dangerous secret: Jewish children are being smuggled away from the Nazis, close to his mountain village. Now German soldiers are at the border and Jo must get word to his friends that the children are trapped.







The former Children's Laureate again demonstrates why he is considered to be the master storyteller. In the tradition of Goodnight Mr Tom, Carrie's War, and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, this collection of war stories takes children to the heart of a tumultuous period in history. A fantastic gift book for the young avid reader that will provide excellent context for children studying WWII.







Michael has written more than one hundred books for children including An Eagle in the Snow, Listen to the Moon, Private Peaceful, and An Elephant in the Garden. He has won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children's Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times.

Former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo needs no introduction. He is one of the most successful children's authors in the country, loved by children, teachers and parents alike. Michael has written more than forty books for children including the global hit War Horse, which was made into a Hollywood film by Steven Spielberg in 2011. Several of his other stories have been adapted for screen and stage, including My Friend Walter, Why the Whales Came and Kensuke's Kingdom. Michael has won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children's Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times. He started the charity Farms for City Children in 1976 with his wife, Clare, aimed at relieving the "poverty of experience" many young children feel in inner city and urban areas. Michael is also a patron of over a dozen other charities. Living in Devon, listening to Mozart and working with children have provided Michael with the ideas and incentive to write his stories. He spends half his life mucking out sheds with the children, feeding sheep or milking cows; the other half he spends dreaming up and writing stories for children. "For me, the greater part of writing is daydreaming, dreaming the dream of my story until it hatches out - the writing down of it I always find hard. But I love finishing it, then holding the book in my hand and sharing my dream with my readers." Michael received an OBE in December 2006 for his services to literature.
