When Fishes Flew, Michael Morpurgo’s stunning novel for all ages, is a gripping tale of heroic wartime exploits as the protagonist uncovers the long-buried story of how her aunt became an unsung hero of the Second World War. In a Chalke Valley History Festival exclusive the nation’s favourite storyteller returns to discuss how his writing career has been shaped by his experiences of growing up in the ruins of post-war London in a family shattered by the conflict.
