I first off read this children's book myself as an adult and absolutely adored it. I've since bought it as a present for children, both girls and boys, aged about 10 and it's gone down very well. Morpurgo is one of our very best children's authors and it has lovely illustrations.

A great book to give a child.

I also enjoyed this book and now my 12 year old is reading it.Would recomend this to anyone who enjoys a quick read.Lovely ending.
