Share the stories. Share the adventure.
Michael Morpurgo is one of the best-loved story tellers in the UK, he has written over 150 books that have sold more than 35 million copies worldwide. In 2003 he became the Children’s Laureate and in 2018 was Knighted for his services to children’s literature.
Michael is a passionate advocate of encouraging children to read for pleasure, and his stories often deal with emotionally challenging events, but always with a message of hope and compassion.
In February 2020 we are celebrating some of Michael Morpurgo’s unforgettable stories, curated into specially chosen themes, Tales of the Sea (KS2), Animal Adventures (KS1/2), Times of War (KS2) and Timeless Tales (KS1/2). The goal is to introduce children to Michael’s books if they are yet to discover them, or help them find another of his stories that they’ll love.
