The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning author Michael Morpurgo is also a farmer. Here he captures what living through the terrible foot and mouth epidemic in 2001 felt like for a child on a farm. Told in the dairy of thirteen year old Becky it is a story of exceptional power and sensitivity and one that every child should know.
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Out of the Ashes a small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'the way he writes it makes it an absolutely fantastic read. Five stars all round.'
