Book Review: Dancing Bear by Michael Morpurgo - Reviewed by Romi Foster (26 Nov 2011)
The Dancing Bear is one very sad and short book by MIchael Morpurgo. The story of a village girl and the bear she brings up, it covers they're life together and is definitly, though it is rather short, one of his most affecting stories.
I remember reading it and feeling as if it was a whilwind; with some books you think back to them and decide to read them again because you don't truly remember the ending, or the middle, but with The Dancing Bear, the story is unforgettable, though none the less a book that deserves to be bought; it is one to make you feel lots of emotions and one to maybe make you cry. It is very very powerful.
Michael divides his time between his writing and running Farms for City Children, a charity which each year takes up to 3,000 children to a working farm for a week. Michael and his wife Clare were awarded MBEs this year for their work with the charity. 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. Michael Morpurgo has won the Whitbread Children's Book Award, and the Smarties Book Prize.
