Morpurgo Month ereader offer: A Medal for Leroy


For a special treat, we have chosen three Morpurgo Month picks in ereader format for you to download and indulge in this month.

In the theme of War, A Medal for Leroy is inspired by the true story of Walter Tull the first black officer in the British army. Michael doesn’t remember his father. He was an RAF pilot lost in the war, but that’s all Michael knows. And his mother won’t talk about him. But when Michael’s Auntie Snowdrop gives him a medal, and then a faded photograph, a story begins to be told. A secret story about his family and who Michael’s father really was… a story that will change everything.
