Kensuke’s Kingdom

This isn’t my favourite Michael Morpurgo book, but I do marvel at the way he sets everything up so quickly – parents setting off on a round-the-world sailing voyage; the first months of that voyage; and then the storm that strands our young hero alone on a Pacific island. You’re pulled instantly into the story, as easily as the waves pulls the narrator away from the yacht and safety. Terrific writing.
