liked it

I liked this book a lot! The book was interesting itself because it had a bunch of little stories in on chapter book. It had short stories and at the end of one short story the author, Michael Morpurgo, would tell you a little about himself when he was a little boy. He would also tell you what inspired him and what he thought writing a book or anything is all about. One of my favorite stories out of them all must have been The Mozart Question. The Mozart Question is basically about this little boy whose parents used to play in concentration camps. They were in the orchestra playing the violin and when they brought in Jewish people to kill them, they would play pieces by Mozart to calm them down. The son is secretly taking violin lessons and has no idea that his teacher knows his parents, because he too played in the orchestra. It is a fascinating story. Some of the stories in the book are related to his real life, some of them like Run-away is from his own experience running away from boarding school. They are all great stories and really worth reading!
