Michael Morpurgo Interview

Sarah Kinson interviews Michael Morpurgo for the Guardian theblog/books. Here's a sample from the interview:

  • "Did you have books in your home when you were growing up?"

  • "Every wall was lined with books and I was expected to read and enjoy them. My grandfather was a philosopher and poet, and my stepfather was a writer and publisher. However, like many children, I didn't want to do what was expected of me so I didn't read much except comics and Enid Blyton, which was banned!"
