The Lovereading4Kids comment
Prize-winning Michael Morpurgo packs in a range of big emotions in this beautifully written short novel for newly fluent readers and reissued for a new generation of children. Helped by his granny, Nick learns to see off the nasty bully with his extra-strength conker and also comes to terms with the loss of a beloved pet and finds a way of filling the gap he has left.
The LoveReading Comment:
When Stevie Rooster is mean about Nick's old dog dying, Nick throws Stevie's best conker into the pond. But Grandma says there's a better way to get back at Stevie - become Conker King of Jubilee Park. In order to do that, Nick must use some conkers from the tree in the old scrapyard.
Conker by Michael Morpurgo
In the scrapyard is a skinny, starving dog who looks like Nick's old dog. Can Nick rescue the dog and become conker champion? This is a moving story about grief, redemption and the love of a family pet.
