Reading charity Booktrust is pleased to announce former Children’s Laureate and best-selling author Michael Morpurgo as its new President. The role, previously held by the late Doris Lessing, offers a notable figure as a supporter and ambassador for Booktrust’s work.
Booktrust believes that no-one should miss out on the life changing benefits that reading can bring. It gives free books to children via national programmes such as ‘Bookstart’, which works through locally based organisations to give packs of books to babies and toddlers, with guidance materials for parents and carers. With over 90 years of expertise in recommending books, it runs sponsored book prizes and manages creative reading projects, such as the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Waterstones Children’s Laureate. This year, it launched a brand new prize – The Booktrust Best Book Awards, supported by Kindle.

I found this book really good. It was really fascinating!! I would read it over an over again and still never get bored of this book! I truly love this author and I would do anything to meet him. He really inspired me to start writing mini stories similar to his. Thanks so much Micheal!!
Also recommend war horse it’s amazing!! Oh and private peaceful! I’ve watched the movie and read the book and cried in both!! Lots of love Riya age 12 xx
This book is so sweet!
It starts like a normal book but it gradually you realise how it actually is different from anything you read.
I didn’t expect anything that exciting to happen but I was wrong!!!
I fully recommend you read this, I was reading it for something to do but I couldn’t put it down once I got into it. It gets very sad but the emotion brings out the amazing story in itself!
A MUST READ !!!
