Not Bad For A Bad Lad
by Michael Morpurgo, illustrated by Michael Foreman
Coming from the author of the best-selling book War Horse, which became the worldwide smash hit play and film, this has serious pedigree. Like that book, it’s about horses and it has a strong link to real events in history. When a ‘bad lad’ is sent to borstal, he finds refuge, and ultimately a new path in life, through working in the prison stable. It’s a story of trust and respect, written by a grandpa to his grandson. Inspiring and heartwarming, with beautiful watercolours that bring it to life, this deserves a place on every child’s bookshelf.
