The 10pm Question

Not Bad for a Bad Lad
Michael Morpurgo, illustrated by Michael Foreman

Everyone thinks this lad is bad, so it’s no surprise when he’s sent to Borstal. But then he starts work in the prison stable and something begins to change . . .

Morpurgo and Foreman weave an inspiring tale about what happens when someone is shown how to follow their dreams. Also includes a fact-packed historical section.

"A classic collaboration and a tale of redemption." Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

"Evocative watercolours and line drawings … the message is that youngsters need to feel good about themselves." Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times

"This is a beautiful book, from cover to cover, and a beautiful story too. …" Armadillo Magazine
