I absolutely loved this book. Michael Morpurgo is one of my all-time favourite authors and I am so glad to come to a close of 2019 reading things that make me happy. This novel was a collection of short stores and snippets of Morpurgo’s work. I really love the writing style and how diverse it is. Each story was different yet beautiful. I loved it!!
