My hero

My hero is my favourite author; Michael Morpurgo.

We were so lucky to have seen him talk when he came to Christchurch last year.
Michael Morpurgo is one of Britain’s best children’s books authors. In fact he was the Children’s Laureate which is the best you can be. He has written more than 100 books.

I have  read many of them and loved them all.
Special favourites are:
The butterfly lion
I believe in unicorns
Kensuke’s kingdom
The Mozart question
Kaspar : prince of cats
All of these and many more are in our school library. Check them out.
Have a look at his website too.
