Welcome to Michael Morpurgo Month!

Here we are in November; nearly at the year's close. And this is quite a special November. This November is Michael Morpurgo Month! In honour of his 70th birthday (which occurred on the %th of October), this November has been designated to honour one of the most prolific and well-loved children's authors of all time. Each day throughout November, a different book will be highlighted. (As it's the 3rd, today's book is The Dancing Bear.) Also, there are online interviews and events with Mr. Morpurgo himself.
His books have truly charmed and fascinated us all for many, many years. Take time this month to read and reread your favourites. Some favourite old titles have been relaunched with new covers and a new bind-up collection; Of Lions and Unicorns: A Lifetime of Tales from the Master Storyteller, is available now containing the most comprehensive collection of Morpurgo writing to date.
The website will give you every bit of information you need to know about Michael Morpurgo Month and the books and the man himself. What will YOU read? (Personally, I'm going to start with The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips.... or maybe his retelling of Beowulf... so much to chose from!)
