In the Imperial War Museum is a wooden Dachshund, carved by a German prisoner of war for the children of the British family with which he stayed after the fighting ended. It turned out to have been the worst mistake he could have ever made – and one which he must put right before it is too late.

Michael's books have been translated into many languages including Chinese, Bulgarian and Hungarian, Hebrew and Japanese. Then trapped alone in a howling blizzard he is taken by a tribe of high mountain creatures, perhaps yetis, but not quite human and comes to be treated as the re-embodiment of their almost supernatural, white-skinned god-cum-ruler of years earlier. He sits outside the series-driven blockbusters so beloved of publishers nowadays: he hasn't created a Harry Potter or an Alex Rider – and I admire him for resisting that. King of the Cloud Forests is a gripping and heartfelt war story from Britain s best-loved children s author, Michael Morpurgo.From unwanted burden to favourite companion, and from pet to champion race dog, this remarkable greyhound proves that it’s not just cats who have more than one life.

He has written over 150 books, including The Butterfly Lion, Kensuke’s Kingdom, Why the Whales Came, The Mozart Question, Shadow, and War Horse, which was adapted for a hugely successful stage production by the National Theatre and then, in 2011, for a film directed by Steven Spielberg. Ashley and his Uncle Sung, have to flee China and they have to survive living alone in the mountains, during winter, which is hard. He spends half his life mucking out sheds with the children, feeding sheep or milking cows; the other half he spends dreaming up and writing stories for children.No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins.
