A heart-warming and sensitive story about bullying from the former Children’s Laureate and bestselling author is given a brand new package.
Dilly’s got a wart called George on his knee, causing him a lot of grief at school. Everyone laughs at him, his brother calls him ‘Wartman’, and he doesn’t know what to do – until he meets old Mr Ben, that is. Then everything changes! Funny and touching story from a multi award-winning author, with dyslexia-friendly features.

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.
