Soon they are inseparable, beloved by the whole village -- safe, until the arrival of a glamorous film crew who need a dancing bear! / Michael Morpurgo is going from strength to strength: his last novel Born to Run was his best launch yet selling over 36k* HBs in the first 3 months of publication / This new edition will bring this classic story into the new Michael Morpurgo branding to delight a new generation of kids

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.
