Very thought-provoking

A very somber and thought-provoking story. Draining at times too as it contains a lot of sadness, unfairness and death with hardly any moments of joy or hope to lift the spirits occasionally. Mr Morpurgo has pitched this perfectly with year 6/7 children in mind - it has a clear message and uncluttered writing style with plenty of interesting themes for discussion. Well narrated by Jamie Glover.
