HALF A MAN
Revered storyteller, Michael Morpurgo remembers the post-war Britain of his childhood in this unflinching and deeply poignant tale of the physical and mental scars of war, featuring beautiful illustrations from new talent, Gemma O'Callaghan.
Michael is fascinated by and afraid of his grandfather in equal measure, with his disfigured, unsmiling face and taciturn manner.
Then a summer spent on the Isles of Scilly enables him to finally see the man behind the burns, and gives Michael the power to heal wounds that have divided his family for so long.
