I read the book and it is heart warming and it is our class book and we are making a story of Wartman but instead we are doing Wartwoman

It's a great book and we read it at school. I recommend this book for 7 to 10 years old children.I given it 5 stars because it is the best book in the world, in my opinion. I also think that it is based on true things that really do happen like getting bullied and being embarised about a wort.
It is a brilliant book. I read it at school because we are doing a project on michael morpurgo.
