Kensuke’s Kingdom is a true children’s classic by former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo, the creator of War Horse. I heard the wind above me in the sails. I remember thinking, this is silly, you haven’t got your safety harness on, you haven’t got your lifejacket on. You shouldn’t be doing this . . . I was in the cold of the sea before I could even open my mouth to scream. Washed up on an island in the Pacific, Michael struggles to survive on his own. With no food and no water, he curls up to die. When he wakes, there is a plate beside him of fish, of fruit, and a bowl of fresh water. He is not alone . . . From the author of War Horse, Private Peaceful, An Eagle in the Snow, Listen to the Moon, and I Believe in Unicorns comes a stunning children’s story – loved by kids, teachers and parents alike. Michael Morpurgo has written more than one hundred books and won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children’s Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times. Reviewed as ‘A dazzling adventure’ by The Times.

When the Bismarck sinks, one of the only German survivors is taken on board a British ship as a prisoner of war. Sent to live on a farm with a host family, the soldier must adapt to a new way of life, in the heart of an enemy country. Gradually, he shows his new hosts that he may be German, but he is a person too, with all the hopes and feelings that entails. So when the time finally comes to go back to Germany, it's an emotional parting, with the German leaving only a carved dog to remember him by. The question is, will the soldier and his new family ever meet again? In 1966, with the world cup coming to Britain, that opportunity may just have come along.

Drei Jahre alt war Apple, als ihre Mum sie in einer stürmischen Nacht bei der Großmutter zurückließ. Seitdem hat Apple nichts von ihr gehört. Elf Jahre später taucht Mum plötzlich wieder auf. Mum ist das Gegenteil von Apples strenger, konservativer Nana. Im Glückstaumel zieht Apple bei Nana aus, direkt zu Mum. Womit sie aber nicht gerechnet hat: Sie ist nicht Mums einziges Kind. Dass ihre kleine Halbschwester Rain ebenso wenig von Apple wusste, macht die Sache nicht besser. Und dass Mum Apple als Babysitterin braucht, auch nicht. Apple dämmert, dass sie eine schwierige Wahl getroffen hat. Zum Glück kann sie sich dem Nachbarsjungen Del anvertrauen, der ziemlich gut zuhören kann ...
