Telling Tales

33. Singing for Mrs Pettigrew: a story-maker’s journey by Michael Morpurgo

I haven’t read as much Morpurgo as I’d like, especially after reading this self-annotated anthology/memoir of his writing. I cried several times at his stories (and doing so made me forget a small bit of physical pain) and got a real sense of the author, man and boy. While it could easily be dipped into, this is certainly an anthology that rewards being read cover to cover.
