Michael Morpurgo is one of the world’s most prolific and successful children’s writers. Out of his 150 books, his most famous is perhaps the 1982 novel “War Horse”, which became a global theatre phenomenon with more than 3,000 performances and a film directed by Steven Spielberg starring Benedict Cumberbatch. The storytelling supremo speaks to Eve Jackson about the film adaptation of his 1999 book “Kensuke’s Kingdom”, which he says is the only movie of his books that he truly likes.
