Celebrate Michael Morpurgo Month!

We are celebrating the nation’s favourite storyteller, and want you to get involved!  Each week during the month of March we will be highlighting titles based around themes close to the author’s heart: War, Journeys, Legends and Animals.  It’s a chance for everyone to find out more about Michael Morpurgo’s wonderful stories – from schools, libraries and bookshops to parents and children of all ages.

To help support the chosen titles – published by HarperCollins Children’s Books, Egmont Publishing and Walker Books –  there are teacher resources, extracts, audio clips and more.
