Morpurgo is really good at telling stories of friendships between children and animals, often while also telling of war. Comment: The spine or cover may be slightly worn but the book is otherwise in good condition and will provide thought provoking read!

This book is a short novel in fairly large print with charming illustrations that is suitable for readers of all ages.It is a small book and so would be great for children who sometimes can feel intimidated by the amount of pages in a book. There are so many benefits from listening to a story in any format, from developing listening skills and quite concentration to fostering imagination and visualization techniques. Michael is good at using his imagination thats why I like his books but out of all the books he's written The Butterfly lion is the best.

Then the first world war rears its ugly head and the boy now a man has to go and fight in France, Does he remember his vow to the lion ? You could also consider Lilly’s perspective, when she met Bertie or when he went away to fight in the war. It may be difficult to remember sometimes,but there's always sun behind the clouds,and the clouds do go in the end. A British boy and a white lion cub form a bond in turn-of-the-century South Africa, and when years later, the now grown-up boy sees the lion's image on a circus poster, he vows to find his friend again. It is a story told in the first person by a young boy who runs away from his school lonely and sad and meets the old lady who relates the story of her husband from long before.I add my voice to the majority of commentators who rate this book highly for children of all ages, even into their old age! I can see why they opted to also tell this story on stage, it has all the hallmarks of a great story that appeals to people of all ages.
