This book was amazing, anyone who reads it at first might or probably will find it boring, however it soon begins to get exciting. Plus the more you read it, the more you want to carry on reading. I found this book very fascinating and interesting and what i think of Michael Morpurgo is that he is a very talented writer and i do know that he has written many other books and he really has inspired and encouraged me to read more of his books. I really would recommend this to anyone aged from 9-11 [...]

A deceptively simple and straightforward story - so brilliantly written and without a doubt up their with Morpurgo's very best. As with all classic 'children's literature' this transcends any confines of the genre.

This enchanting tale is full of emotive storylines throughout - love, compassion, hope, despair, envy, trust, fear and jealousy are just some of the feelings that are expertly portrayed by the inimitable Michael Morpurgo.The story tells of a 12 year old boy, Michael who lives with his parents and his dog - Stella Artois - in a normal family home. One day Michael's father loses his job, and as there are no more available where they live, the family decide to follow a dream and use dad's redundanc [...]

Kensuke's Kingdom is a wonderful story of survival and friendship as it takes you away as Michael, a boy out with his family on the ultimate adventure. Michael and his family are going to live aboard the Peggy Sue, (boat). His family consists of a mother, father, and dog, Stella Artois. Drifted away in a storm, Michael and Stella end up on an island and are reluctantly accepted into Kensuke's, (a World War II veteran who hasn't left the island since the war was over) world. Personally, the novel [...]

It has a dog on the cover, so I have to put it on my list to read!Despite the dog on the cover, the book is mostly about a boy that is a castaway on an island with his dog. This is currently a Book Bowl book for Henrico County 5th graders. It is easy to read and very interesting. I really enjoyed reading it!

Kensuke's Kingdom is one of my absolute favourite childhood books. I first read almost the entirety of it aloud when it was chosen for our class reading time in Year Six, and have been enraptured in the wonder and adventure of the story each time I have picked it up since. A wonderful novel, with fantastic passages of writing, and an engaging narrator.

Kensuke’s Kingdom, winner of the children’s book award is one I was fortunate to read and work with whilst employed as an LSA in 2012. Within a year 5 class we studied every inch of this book for over a month as a literacy topic. Given this time frame the book was enthralling from beginning to end and left every child wanting to know more everytime the book was put down. This to me is the telling sign of an excellent read. There are 5 main characters in the book, Michael, Mum, Dad, Stella Ar [...]

Book review 10 – Kensuke’s Kingdom – Michael MorpurgoI first saw this book on the bookshelf in a year 6 classroom. The whole class was doing a ‘big writing’ piece on the text so I took the book home and was surprised it’s flowing and gripping nature. Kensuke’s Kingdom will have an appeal for both young and old and it is an exciting adventure story about a boy called Michael. Michael, Stella Artois (his pet dog) and parents, set of on the ultimate adventure on-board Peggy Sue (a boa [...]

I read this book years ago (when I was about eleven) and absolutely loved it. It's not my favorite of Michael Morpurgo's, but still. It was one of those books I used to read over and over, by flashlight, under my duvet way past my bedtime.Oh, those were the days.

As a school librarian I have to read a lot of children's and YA books. However I barely document them unless one of them strikes me. I have read Morpurgo before but I think this is one of his best ones.The story deals with Michael, a boy who is shipwrecked on an island. Once he starts adapting to Robinson Crusoe island life, he discovers an old Japanese man called Kensuke. At first they are enemies and then they develop a friend and mentor relationship until *SPOILER* Michael is saved while Kens [...]
