Inspired by the true story of Walter Tull, the first black officer in the British army, this is a stunning new novel of identity and loss by Michael Morpurgo, biggest UK children's author and the bestselling, award-winning writer of War Horse, now a smash West End and Broadway hit as well as an Oscar-nominated movie. Michael doesn't remember his father, an RAF pilot lost in the war. And his French mother, heartbroken and passionate, doesn't like to talk about her husband. But then Auntie Snowdrop gives Michael a medal, followed by a photograph, which begin to reveal a hidden history. A story of love and loss. A story that will change everything - and reveal to Michael who he really is...
I bought this to give to my 9-year-old great nephew but decided to read it myself first. As a retired teacher I would say that the reading level might be suitable for a good 9-year-old reader but that the emotional content is more suitable for 10+. It might be about a boy but I think that girls would enjoy it too.
