Book Review: Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips by Michael Morpurgo - Reviewed by Romi Foster (26 Nov 2011)
The amazing story of Adolphus Tips is just that- amazing! It is the story of a girl called Lily's cat who, when the war comes to thier beachside town and fences off a lot of places for training ect., runs away. Lily loves Adolphus more than she can say, so after they continually don't find her, she goes out alone one night, across the do not enter sign and searches for her cat.
This was the very first Michael Morpurgo book I read and it set me off on a search through the at least 15 other's at the library. He was one of my favourite authors in no time at all!
In May 2003 Michael was appointed Children's Laureate. During this role, he has travelled the country from end to end, bringing books to children in remote areas as well as to inner city children. Through the power of his storytelling, Michael has succeeded in 'putting literature back into literacy'. Michael and his wife Clare have been award MBEs for their work in founding and running the charity Farms for City Children, a charity which each year takes up to 3,000 children to a working farm for a week. Before the first farm opened 22 years ago, Morpurgo was a teacher and his knowledge of children's experiences, plus his experience of farms enrich his writing enormously. He has won the Whitbread Children's Book Award, the Red House Children's Book Award, the Carnedie Medal and the Smarties Book Prize.
