My son is reading this book at school with his class and I decided to read it as well as he said he would like to be able to discuss it with me because he found it so exciting, I love to read a Michael Morpurgo book every now and again as I love his writing and one of my favourite books by Michael Morpurgo is Private Peaceful so was quite happy to read Kensuke's Kingdom.
The story is about Michael a twelve year old boy who gets washed up on an island in the pacific, Michael struggles to survive as he learns the ways of the Island but he is not alone...
Kensuke's Kingdom is a lovely book and a great adventure story, I love the fact that in such a subtle way and without a child even realising it they learn so much from this book as throughout the story there are lots of interesting facts and information. I also love the emotions in this book and think it has wonderful discussion topics for children.
A great Children's story and I am looking forward to reading more of Michael Morpurgo books.
