Farm Boy (Audio)

Michael Morpurgo

7 years +

Read by Derek Jacobi and Michael Morpurgo Set on a farm in rural Devon, this is a collection of Grandpa's reminiscences and stories as told to his grandson. Grandpa's nature and his touching relationship with the boy is evoked superbly by Michael Morpurgo's writing. This two-voice read brings the characters to life as the story of Grandpa's 'shame' (the fact that he cannot read and write) unfolds. Derek Jacobi is sensitive and compelling in the role of Grandpa, inspiring a true sense of achievement and triumph as he finally tells his own story in his own words.

Farm boy -

A really warm tale that kept us gripped while travelling. The story telling drew us into the relationship between grandfather and grandson making us want to know how it would end. Ideal car journey listening.
