My Friend Walter, Paperback

My Friend Walter Paperback



My Friend Walter is a charming and hilarious story of friendship between different eras from Britain's best-loved children's author, Michael Morpurgo.

Living with a ghost can have its difficulties, I discovered, even if he is your friend.

Remember Sir Walter Raleigh, who laid his cloak in a puddle so that Queen Elizabeth I could walk across?

Well, Bess meets his ghost and finds out he's an ancestor!

How will Bess explain Sir Walter to her family? Especially when he breaks her brother's fishing rod, steals a horse and smokes cigars in her room!

Former Children's Laureate and award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo, demonstrates why he is considered to be the master story teller with a uniquely funny take on spirits from the other side.

Not just your average ghost story.
