Book review on Shadow by Michael Morpurgo

What is it about?
It is all about a young boy named Aman who had been treated (along with his mum) badly by the Afghan police. A dog turns up at the mouth of his cave and becomes a good friend.

How does it make you feel?
It makes me feel a little upset because you don’t know if Aman will make it or not and the atmosphere sounds all crowded and trapped.

Who is your favourite character?
My favourite character would be Aman or Shadow. Aman is strong and smart and Shadow, the dog is a dog you can trust.

Would you recommend this book? Why?
Yes, I would, because it is the sort of book my friends would like and I loved it.

I would like to ask Morpurgo where he got his ideas for this book.

By Rhiannon

I thought that shadow was an amazing book because I like how shadow leads aman and his mother to England. Shadow was a good book and I personally think it should win Book fest. I like how Sergeant Broody had the dog first and then uncle Mere, then grandpa. I would rate shadow 10/10 it was sad when somebody died, but it was fantastic when shadow saved loads of lives by finding the bombs.
