This book is amazing!
I hadn’t read anything by Michael Morpurgo except in school so I didn’t really like him (shocking I know!). That is until I read this and I absolutely loved it! It is written so clearly it’s like you’re there with Arthur (the main character), experiencing everything he is! And finally without trying to spoil it I think the ending is lovely! =]

This is the story of Arthur Hobhouse who has been orphaned and sent to Australia. He only has vague memories of England and his sister Kitty. This is on my tear-jerker list so keep some tissues spare. This book is based on a true person and Michael Morpurgo has really captivated the feeling and emotion of this story and is very well-written.
