Michael Morpurgo is the author of over sixty books, many short stories and even two musicals. Several of his novels have been adapted for film and television and have been translated into more than a dozen languages. Michael lives in Devon with his wife Clare, and last year they were both awarded MBEs in recognition of their work for their charity, Farms for City Children.
"A tale about another country and another time that resonates with the here and now! Once again, Morpurgo demonstrates his talent for stories of absolute clarity about big events" Sunday Times "A poignant tale, simply told, about the horror of the Spanish Civil War and the noble cruelty of bullfighting." Sunday Telegraph "In Toro! Toro! Michael Morpurgo unpicks the problem of taking sides, of how enemies can be good, of guilty secrets kept for years! A compact, horrifying and compelling story" The Times "A beautifully, directly and convincingly told story: typical Morpurgo. Michael Foreman's illustrations are exactly right and the whole is a very fine, thoroughly recommended, production." School Librarian
