Michael Morpurgo

Kensuke's Kingdom

When Michael's father loses his job, he buys a boat and convinces Michael and his mother to sail around the world. It's an ideal trip — even Michael's sheepdog can come along. It starts out as the perfect family adventure — until Michael is swept overboard. He's washed up on an island, where he struggles to survive. Then he discovers that he's not alone. His fellow-castaway, Kensuke, is wary of him. But when Michael's life is threatened, Kensuke slowly lets the boy into his world. The two develop a close understanding in this remote place, but the question of rescue continues to divide them.

    Michael is true. It is like that he maybe couldn’t survive if he hadn’t have help from Kensuke.

    Now I understood. It was a map of the island. When it was done he fell on his knees beside it, and piled up mounds of sand, one at each end – the two hills. Then, very deliberately, he etched out a straight line, top to bottom, cutting the smaller end of the island off from the larger one.

    Important to remember this I can always go back!
