My Friend Walter (2001)

Times of War Collection (2003)

Within an hour he owned just about all of London, and had left me bankrupt, and in jail. “You see?” he said, punching the air with both fists in triumph. “I am very good in business, like my father was. He was a farmer. Where we used to live in Bamiyan, in Afghanistan. He had sheep, many sheep, t...

Alone on a Wide Wide Sea

I suppose you could call them my years in the wilderness. I shan’t enjoy writing about them, but I’ve got to do it. Like it or not, I can’t just miss it out. Luckily for me, quite a lot of it is lost in a fog of forgetfulness. Perhaps that’s what happens sometimes. Perhaps it’s an automatic survi...

A Medal for Leroy

But that was the gist of it. And I can’t remember how long we sat at that table downing egg and chips, and beer. I had my first ever sip of beer that day – Father would never allow alcohol in the house back home. All I know is that we talked and talked. After a while he took my hands in his. He h...

Black Queen

I said. She didn’t look as if she believed me. “It was Rambo. He came upstairs. I couldn’t stop him. Honest. He wouldn’t come down.” She said nothing, but just looked at me, frowning. I was glad I wasn’t having to lie, because I knew her eyes would find me out. Rambo was rubbing himself blissfull...

Black Queen by Michael Morpurgo


Do you know the rogue?” Robin saw the man was wearing the brown habit of a friar. “I’ve heard of him,” Robin replied. “Now will you let me up?” But the friar put his foot on Robin’s chest and would not let him move. “Tell me where I can find him and I might let you live, by God’s good grace,” sai...

Dear Olly

They would be difficult to settle. Matt was hot in his clown costume, but he didn’t mind. The courtyard had rung with laughter as he’d told them his story of the Sultan and the Cockerel – their particular favourite – and that was all that mattered. The new girl, just brought in that morning – Mat...

Not Bad for a Bad Lad (2011)

I’ve written it so you’ll know all the things about your grandpa that you’ve got a right to know and that I never told you. There’s no two ways about it: when I was young I was a bad lad. I’m not proud of it, not one bit. Grandma has been saying for quite a while now that it’s about time I told y...

War Horse

The shelling moved back and forth along the valley, showering grass and earth and trees into the air and leaving behind great craters that smoked as if the earth itself was on fire. But any fear I might have had was overwhelmed by a powerful sense of sadness and love that compelled me to stay wit...

Little Foxes

It was a large box with these words stencilled across it: ‘Handle with care. This side up. Perishable.’ For Police Constable William Fazackerly this was a night never to be forgotten. He had pounded the streets all night checking shop doors and windows, but it was too cold a night even for burgla...

But he had not always been like this. He is remembered by his mother as the happy, chortling child of his infancy, content to bask in his mother’s warmth and secure in the knowledge that the world was made just for him. But with the ability to walk came the slow understanding that he walked diffe...

Somehow I expected Jaquot to be there, but he was not. There was no sparrow to be seen, no bird at all in the sky above me, only a plane flying high, silver in the sun, a vapour trail blossoming in its wake. I glanced down at my watch. I had been all day down by the river, yet it seemed to have p...
