But it's true,' Tom shouted. 'It was a real lion, I know it was.'No-one believes Tom when he says he has seen a lion - padding around the orchard with a string of sausages in its mouth! No-one, that is, except for Clare, the cleverest girl in the class. Together, she and Tom plan to prove his story is true - by catching the lion!

"Morpurgo writes with a fine mixture of clarity, depth and feeling" * The Sunday Times * "One of today's greatest storytellers" * The Bookseller * "There is often something of the traditional storyteller about Michael Morpurgo. As a reader, we feel part of an audience, spell-bound by the unfolding tale . . . one of the most confident and accomplished writers for children today" * Scotsman * "Michael Morpurgo is a master of the first person narrative: when he embarks on a story he doesn't keep you waiting - he simply grips your hand and helps you on board" * Telling Tales *

Michael Morpurgo


About the Author


Michael Morpurgo is the author of many books for children, five of which have been made into films. He also writes his own screenplays and libretti for opera. Born in St Albans, Hertfordshire, in 1943, he was evacuated to Cumberland during the last years of the war, then returned to London, moving later to Essex. 


After a brief and unsuccessful spell in the army, he took up teaching and started to write. He left teaching after ten years in order to set up 'Farms for City Children' with his wife. They have three farms in Devon, Wales and Gloucestershire, open to inner city school children who come to stay and work with the animals. 

In 1999 this work was publicly recognised when he and his wife were awarded an MBE for services to youth. He is also a father and grandfather, so children have always played a large part in his life. Every year he and his family spend time in the Scilly Isles, the setting for three of his books.
