Description

Gracie and her friend have always been warned to stay away from the Birdman and his side of the island. But then, they discover the Birdman is not who they thought. They build up friendship with him, but when the children get stranded on Samson Island they don't know whether to believe the birdman's story that the island is cursed.

An exciting historical adventure from War Horse author and former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo.


Gracie and her friend Daniel have always been warned to stay away from the Birdman and his side of the island. But then they find a message in the sand and discover the Birdman is not who they thought. They build up a lovely friendship with him, but when the children get stranded on Samson Island they don't know whether to believe the birdman's story that the island is cursed.


Set against the backdrop of the First World War, in the tradition of Friend or Foe and Private Peaceful Michael Morpurgo brings the emotional reality of conflict to life in a way that is accessible to younger readers. Look out for his other historical adventures including An Eagle in the Snow and Listen to the Moon.

Praise for Why the Whales Came:

'The Scilly Islands off the English coast provide the setting for this well-written historical novel . . . good readers will find this a memorable adventure, no less immediate for its setting in the past.' Booklist
