Interview with Michael Morpurgo - Author of the book

Although he was born after the war, author of War HorseMichael Morpurgo, grew up surrounded by the ghosts of the war. He tells how when sat in a pub one day, a painting caught his eye. The painting was a cavalry charge and an old man in the pub told him about his experience in the war and what happened to all the horses he loved. This was the seed that was planted into Morpurgo's mind and grew into the story of War Horse... 

We had such a fascinating time talking to him and only wish that we had more time, you can listen here to our interview!
