Modern Classics - Kensuke's Kingdom (Modern Classics)

By Michael Morpurgo

I disappeared on the night before my twelfth birthday.

Washed up on an island in the Pacific, Michael struggles to survive on his own. With no food and no water, he curls up to die. When he wakes, there is a plate beside him of fish, of fruit, and a bowl of fresh water. He is not alone …

From the author of the internationally acclaimed War Horse, this is a spellbinding adventure story about friendship and survival.

Kensuke’s Kingdom was shortlisted for the Whitbread Prize and won the FCB Award.
