A Swift Adventure | Michael Morpurgo interview

National treasure Michael Morpurgo is our very special guest in this episode. Sir Michael has written more than 100 much-loved books including War Horse, Private Peaceful and Kensuke’s Kingdom. In this interview, he talks about the inspiration behind his latest book Boy Giant: Son of Gulliver. Inspired by Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, the story is about Omar, a 12-year-old refugee from Afghanistan.


We also discuss three recommended Morpurgo books with some of the back office team at Hampshire Libraries:

The Butterfly Lion

Alone on a Wide Wide Sea

The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips
