 Michael Morpurgo

Michael Morpurgo is the author of many books for children, six of which have been made into films. Born in St Albans in Hrtfordshire in 1943, he was evacuated to Cumberland during the last years of the war, before returning to London and later moving to Essex. After a brief and unsuccessful spell in the army, he took up teaching and started to write. He left teaching after ten years in order to set up "Farms for City Children" with his wife. They have three farms in Devon, Wales and Gloucestershire, open to inner city school children who come to stay and work with the animals. In 1999 this work was publicly recognised when he and his wife were awarded an MBE for services to youth. He is also a father and grandfather, so children have always played an important part in his life. Morpurgo has a gift for magical storytelling, and his books also often tackle social issues. In 2003 Michael Morpurgo became the third Children's Laureate, a scheme he had originally helped to set up with poet Ted Hughes. The Laureateship rewards a lifetime contribution to children's literature and highlights the importance of the role of children's books. In 2004 he received the Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres and he has won La Prix Sorcière for his books Le Royaume de Kensuke, Soldat Peaceful and Le Roi des Forêts de Brume. He was awarded an OBE in 2006 for services to literature.
