Michael Morpurgo doesn’t simply stop at talking about the culture of people but talks about the culture of the creature that find Ashley in the Himalayas.

Morpurgo added: “Storymakers and storytellers like Barrie, and like all the previous winners of this award, have given us the hope and faith children need, we need, to keep flying, have sustained us through dark and troubled times, have banished doubt. He also meets Jemima the pig: she smells and she slobbers, she breaks out of her pen to steal potatoes, and she’s the undisputed queen of the farm. While written for children, anyone with an interest in history and strange possibilities will enjoy this. this was so well written that for a second i genuinely thought it was realistic that a man could get lost and some monkey species would take care of him, name them his king and he would learn their language.In November 2016 Michael Morpurgo won the J M Barrie Award for his contribution to children’s literature. Incredible emotions are evoked between them as they are each reliant on communication by gesture rather than spoken word.

The rest of the story describes how Ashley is reunited with Uncle Sung and travels to England where he meets and, along with Uncle Sung, comes to live with his relatives and also succeeds in piecing together the reasons for his status among the Yetis. Ashley is uncomfortable with this false position and leaves their warm companionship to continue his hard journey, all alone, across into India.

All the favourites are there: Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow and the Lion, in a tale that is wonderfully familiar, but full of surprises too! With his wife Clare, he set up the charity Farms for City Children, which offers children and teachers from inner-city primary schools the chance to live and work in the countryside for a week on one of the charity’s three farms in Devon, Gloucestershire and Wales. With nothing but the shirt on his back and a bottle of water, Will must learn to survive deep in the jungle.When the Fall and its storms reach the Himalayas, Uncle Sung goes to get food supplies, leaving Ashley, 14, all alone in a hut in the mountain. You can also read about his life in War Child to War Horse, a collaborative biography with Maggie Fergusson.

High in the mountains, in a tiny village, an abandoned bear cub is adopted by a lonely orphan child. I said in my comments as I was reading the book that it was like watching an experienced tightrope walker performing her act and thinking 'that looks easy enough'. My main reason for reading this was because it was a recommended text for a KS2 mountain based topic. They are inseparable until Bertie is sent to boarding school far away in England and the lion is sold to a circus.

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.

The consistency of the narrative voice gives legitimacy to the mythological presence and helps to lessen the jolt from reality to fantasy. For me, the greater part of writing is daydreaming, dreaming the dream of my story until it hatches out - the writing down of it I always find hard.
