Product description

Rarely do you find a story-maker like Michael Morpurgo OBE: a former Children’s Laureate and author of classics like War Horse. Now this favourite storyteller shares the secrets of his inspiration in a book that combines extracts from his novels with his own highly personal essays about them. You’ll find out where he gets his ideas from, and the background to his most famous stories. Why does he so often write about war, for example? How did war touch Michael’s own life? Plus, there are photos and memorabilia, personal insights from Michael’s brother Mark, and (last but definitely not least) beautiful artwork by Michael Foreman.

  • A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at a master writer’s craft
  • Pairs extracts from Michael’s novels with his essays about them
  • Shows how stories originate and inspires kids to write their own
  • Bursting with insights, photos, fascinating facts and lovely artwork

“This is totally absorbing – find out how one of our greatest storytellers gets his inspiration. This collection of essays gives a revealing insight into how writing works and where stories begin; it’s a brilliant way to inspire children to write.” Parents in Touch
