Perfect answers to impossible questions

Michael Morpurgo is one of my heroes. I love his books. They are full of courage and warmth and tenderness. I also love the answers he gave to the ‘Five most asked questions’ in this clip. Every children’s author is asked these questions at some time or another, and usually on a regular basis.

Of the five questions that Morpurgo answers in this clip, only one answer – the one where he describes how he writes- differs to the reply I’d make to the same question. I especially like what he says about truth in fiction and which is his favourite book.
