The Butterfly Lion

The Butterfly Lion - Michael Morpurgo I just finished reading this with my daughter tonight (she's six) and it was great. Normally we read two chapters of a book every night but she has been begging me for more of this since we started it two nights ago; we read over half the book tonight. It also started great conversations about war and Africa and boarding schools (amongst other things). It's very touching and of course, being by Morpurgo, very well written.
