I liked this book it's full of some lovely little stories and after reading this my list of books which I want to read has definitely increased as I do enjoy animal stories. Also liked the little notes Michael Morpurgo put before each story as to why he chose each one.
I selected this book, because I love the work of Michael Morpurgo and was disappointed, probably because I do not enjoy extracts of stories and the few short stories did not capture my imagination the way that Michael's writing does.
The wide variety of cultural stories from various time periods in this book adds to the character of the book. The fact that Morpurgo draws upon his own life experiences, involves the audience and keeps them reading. A real page turner.
