Reviews

  • Michael Morpurgo has a knack of taking one small fact and weaving around it a vibrant tale that brings a slice of history to life

    TES
  • The deceptively simple narrative style . . . conveys hope and despair, love and hate, and finally peace . . . Satisfying, thoughtful and ultimately heart-warming

    Financial Times
  • This is a beautifully produced book, with a striking peephole cover and pen-and-wash illustrations by Michael Foreman that serve to dramatise the emotional depth of this touching story about friendship in adversity

    Glasgow Herald
  • A stirring tale of loyalty and bravery, superbly illustrated

    Shelf Life
