Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpugo

Kensuke’s Kingdom

by Michael Morpurgo

Kensuke’s Kingdom is a story all about a young boy, Michael, and his dog getting stranded on a desert island. He has to befriend and live peacefully with the island’s current inhabitant. I first read Kensuke’s Kingdom when I was at primary school myself and the story has stayed with me ever since. What initially grabbed my attention about this book was the sense of adventure as Michael set out on his journey around the world. When Michael meets Kensuke it is wonderful to read about two people so different in every way forming such a close bond. From the fantastic Michael Morpurgo this is a truly poignant tale of trust and mutual respect. This book is so captivating you won’t be able to put it down!
