Michael Morpurgo: why we should remember the first world war
Tuesday, 28th June 2016
Speaking to The Guardian Children's book site back in 2014, Michael Morpurgo explores how the first world war still looms large in our imagination.
He also describes what it's like to watch War Horse performed in a theatre once frequented by Hitler, how he's not a hero, why no subject is too painful for young readers, and why he decided to write a novel from a horse's point of view.
