Review by

Michael Morpurgo brings us on the tale of young Michael who falls overboard in the Indian Ocean, and awakens on a small island. He is lucky to be alive, and even more lucky to find he's not alone on this island, or is he? Kensuke's Kingdom is the story of Michael, a boy who is faced with new challenges and adventures on a small island, which is home to Kensuke. I found this story to be a wonderful read, with excitement, adventure, and especially well captured human emotion and struggle in the face of adversity and circumstances beyond our control. This is a great piece of literature for either a classroom lesson, or simply for the pleasure of reading a good book.
