Product Description

Toby Jenkins hates Redlands’ Boarding School. Everyone calls him ‘Jinks’, and his dream of getting onto the rugby team is slowly fading away. But things are even worse outside the school grounds. When Toby goes fishing, the village boys beat him up, injuring his ear – and suddenly it’s war! As all-out battles of sticks and stones break out between rival boys, what miracle can end the War of Jenkins’ Ear? A brilliant story of school life from Michael Morpurgo.

Michael Morpurgo is a master storyteller, weaving captivating stories full of drama and intensity that are coming to be regarded as true classics. Exploring the most profound subjects with a light yet powerful touch, his books tell unforgettable stories in simple, direct words.

Michael Morpurgo discovered his talent for writing while working as a teacher. “We had to read the children a story every day and my lot were bored by the book I was reading. I decided I had to do something and told them the kind of story I used to tell my kids – it was like a soap opera, and they focused on it. I could see there was magic in it for them, and realised there was magic in it for me.”

Living in Devon, listening to Mozart, and working with children have provided most of the stimulae Michael needs to discover and write his stories. He spends about half his life mucking out sheds with the children, feeding sheep or milking cows; the other half he spends dreaming up and writing stories. “For me, the greater part of writing is daydreaming, dreaming the dream of my story until it hatches out – the writing down of it I always find hard. But I love finishing it, then holding the book in my hand and sharing my dream with my readers.”
