At first I didnt like this book and i was very tempted to stop reading it at the beginning as I found it quite boring and not that gripping, but it grew on me as I read more and more. It was one of those books which takes a long time to enjoy but once you are in the middle and you have got more of an understanding of the story-line and the characters, it’s hard to put down! i was recommended by one of my friends to read this book as I have read many of Michael Morpurgo’s books. This one has got to be one of my favourite with ‘Shadow’, (another really really good book!). This book is sad but also happy and more of an adventure book, which was a perfect genre for me.
I would recommend this book to anyone without a doubt, but I would say the recommended age to read this book would be around 8 or 9 years+ seeing as it quite sad and you witness some horrible scenes at the beginning when arthur was a child. This book would be perfect to be made into a film actually! THIS IS A MUST-READ BOOK!!! X
