  • Michael Morpurgo

    I think it was a pretty good story. It tells you what's actually happening in real life with the deforestation and bad prople killing tigers and kidnapping baby orangutans. But it also tells you that the majority of people disagree, because it's kept in a secret of how they are killing animals or selling them and it was illegal, and among the people who disagree, there are some who make orphanages and rescue the baby oranutans and care for them. I think it was a very emotional and inspiring story, and someone had to write so everyone knew what was happening in the world each day. So thank you Michael Morpurgo. Great fan of yours!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A highly emotional book

    Aimed at his older readers, this book tackles a range of issues such as illegal hunting, the destruction caused by tsunamis and deforestation. This book is action packed, right from the start, with rarely a moment for pause. The reader is constantly being presented with new types of threats as Will fights for survival in the jungle. The emotions are extremely high throughout the book as Will grieves for both his parents. The frustration and desperation Will feels is clear all the time, with Morpurgo taking us right inside Will’s mind. The heavy subjects are cleverly written about, making it both informing and appropriate for all ages. Overall, this is a fantastically written book, with readers feeling connected to Will and feeling huge amounts of sympathy towards him whilst also being educated on real and important subjects.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Running Wild

    I read it to see if it would be a good class reader at school. I enjoyed it and so have the children in my class. It is really educational in terms of its descriptions of the rainforests and the risks of deforestation, mining and poaching.

  • Running Wild By Michael Morpurgo

    This book is really inspiring for me. Right from the start it was a heartfelt story. Will is a brave boy, suvivng out there in the jungle, holding the tears back when he thinks about his family. Thank you so much Michael Morpurgo! I will never forget this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
