Michael Morpurgo recognised in New Year Honours List

Michael Morpurgo, the author of War Horse, has been recognised in the New Year Honours List. 

In response to receiving the award he said: “I think in a way the only reason this wonderful honour has been given, it is for charity, but it is because, probably if I’m honest with myself, it is about one book.

“And it’s about one story and one play, the great good fortune of my writing life in terms of, I suppose, circumstance and bringing the kind of success you can’t dream of in terms of rewards and awards – it’s the play of War Horse”.

“There was never a knight that has owed so much to his horse as this one – and in fact, we will give the knighthood to Joey and call him Sir Joey.” 

Congratulations Sir Michael from all of the War Horse team!
