\n \nAge 9-11Michael Morpurgo has a distinctive writing style that turns the ordinary into the extraordinary with a lyrical twist that make him an undeniable great in the world of children's literature. Here, in Dear Olly, Morpurgo brings one family's story to sparkling life with a stunning simplicity that is at once compelling and poetic in its execution. \n \nOlly's brother Matt has always wanted to be a clown, and when he sees the plight of Africa's children he makes the decision to fly the family nest to take his skill to a place devoid of laughter. To his family it is a travesty: this bright, intelligent boy with a glowing future ups and leaves to head into the unknown, leaving behind him a trail of worry and feelings of impending doom. \n \nOlly is charged with the care of a family of starlings that she and her brother have been watching over in the garden. After Matt's sudden departure the nest is ravaged, leaving just one fledgling alive and stunned. Olly nurses him back to health, and names him Hero. It is Hero's subsequent long and perilous flight to Africa that links the story of Olly, at home with her mother in England, to Matt's new life in Africa. Told in three voices--that of Olly, Hero and Matt--the story spans the continents and delivers love and determination to a poignant, thought-provoking story that stirs the soul. \n \nA beautiful book, brimming with true warmth and dignity, Dear Olly is an unusual work that deserves a space on every child's bookshelf. --Susan Harrison. \n \n
