The Lovereading4Kids comment
What better way to learn the craft of storytelling than from one of the best known storytellers around. Michael Morpurgo has deftly entwined in Singing for Mrs Pettigrew a delightful, even eclectic mix of short stories, for the most part written during his time as Children’s Laureate from 2003-2005, alongside some lessons in the craft of storytelling – how he creates character, plot, sources and inspiration in his tales. Be inspired, he says from everything and everyone around you, from memorable events, from moments in history. Believe in your own ability, be confident and if like him you aren’t doing or didn’t do well at school then don’t forget, it is not a barrier to telling tales. Everyone can do that if they want to.
