I love all of Michael Morpurgo's books...
I especially loved this book because of how gripping it was and it had a great plot
I would recommend it to older readers (over 10) because it is a bit sad

i really liked that all the dogs were the same breed and were always called jasper 
this story is sad but happy at the same time and the way black soilders were treated during the first world war shocked me alot.

I liked this book because it was a very interesting story and kept you thinking.

It was about a boy who is trying to find out about his father. His Auntie dies and leaves him a notebook behind his fathers picture. The rest of the story is him reading through the notebook and right at the end he goes to see where his Grandfather died.

I like Michael Morpurgo books and this one didn't disappoint me.

Might be suitable for slightly older children but my daughter, 7, found this story quite difficult because of how sad it mad her feel. Mature themes. I was very enchanted by this story but I would recommend for children at least 10 years old.
