About Michael Morpurgo

Michael Morpurgo is the author of many books for children, five of which have been made into films, including the phenomenally successful WAR HORSE. 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. Visit Michael at Michael Foreman is one of the UK's pre-eminent children's illustrators. A Kate Greenaway Medal-shortlisted author he has illustrated many bestselling books for children, and is the author of WAR BOY and WAR GAME. Michael is also the illustrator for many of Michael Morpurgo's best-selling books.
