Book review:

The Giant's Necklace

Author: Michael Morpurgo

This book, is not a sequel however Michael has wrote and published many books including the War Horse, Shadow and the Butterfly Lion.

The book has a lot of suspense and a bit of drama and thriller also the book has some funny parts that some younger children wouldn't recognise.

  • Michael has three children. Their names are Sebastian, Horatio and Rosalind. He also has several grandchildren.
  • He became a primary school teacher in Kent after graduating from the university of London.
  • War Horse was also adapted into a 2011 British film directed by the world-famous director, Steven Spielberg.

I would recommend the book for 5+ because there is quite a dramatic scene at the end of the story.
