The white horse of Zennor and other stories
Upper Years - Key Stage 3 Learn More
A thrilling collection of myths, legends and ghost stories from War Horse author and former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo. Since the beginning of time, strange and mysterious things have happened here ...
At the furthest edge of Britain, where the sea gently washes over the land and myths brush against reality, lies Zennor.
Set in a church town where men become beats and ghosts roam freely, these are haunting and unforgettable tales where magic lies around every corner. Morpurgo is the master storyteller of such modern classic children's books as An Eagle in the Snow, Listen to the Moon, Private Peaceful, and An Elephant in the Garden.
He has written more than one hundred books for children and won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children's Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times.
