Review quote

"* "Michael Morpurgo has... fused memory with imagination - in the wonderful stories of Singing for Mrs Pettigrew, a collection as convincing, heartfelt and unforgettable as the rest of the many books that he has published in the past four decades." The Irish Times * "Here is a Laureate with the imaginative force to wrest children from the numbness of a dreary education. It is Morpurgo's time to loom large in the lives of others." The Guardian"
