MICHAEL MORPURGO began writing stories in the early 70s, inspired by the children he taught in his primary school class in Kent.

He has written over 130 books, including The Butterfly Lion, Kensuke's Kingdom, Private Peaceful and War Horse, which was adapted for a hugely successful stage production by the National Theatre and then, in 2011, for a film directed by Steven Spielberg.

But what about the real-life story of Michael Morpurgo? How did a boy supremely uninterested in books, who dreamed of becoming an army officer, become a bestselling author and Children's Laureate? What stories in Michael's own life motivated him to write more than a hundred books for children?

Now celebrating his 75th birthday, join one of the UK's best-loved authors as he shares his gift for magical storytelling and reveals the secrets nearly 50 years of writing has taught him.
