Washed up on a remote island in a Pacific storm, Michael curls up and waits to die. But when he wakes, there is fresh fruit beside him. He is not alone… Michael Morpurgo’s vivid story of a young castaway’s struggle for survival is both a true modern classic and an adventure story in the purest tradition. Fusing action with mystery, it is a heartbreaking but uplifting tale of love, loss, hope and redemption.

Kensukes Kingdom is an Amazing book it left me on the end of my seat at the end of every chapter. It is quite an magnificent book I couldn’t stop reading it at school so sneakily I carried on reading. At first I thought it would be really boring but as they say never judge a book by its cover. I would recommend this book to loads of people because it can inspire you to do the most creative things or even make you want to read any book because books are literally phenomenal.

kensuke’s kingdom is a very good book.it is about a boy michael and his dog stelle artios who have fallen out of their boat and have ended up on this island this is kensuke’s island .even though kensuke helps them he still does not want anyone coming on the island ,he divides the island into 2 and tells michael to stay on his part or he will be punished.
