Michael Morpurgo receives Gold Blue Peter Badge

Michael Morpurgo, Author of War Horse, has received a Blue Peter Gold Badge, the highest accolade that the CBBC show awards. This was presented to Michael in recognition of him inspiring millions of children with his books.

Michael said:

“Since I’ve spent a great deal of my life, first as a child, then father and grandfather, and as a teacher and finally as someone writing stories for children, it is the highest honour and greatest pleasure to be awarded a gold Blue Peter badge by the most iconic children’s programme in the country, a programme that has always had the interest, talent, creativity and welfare of children at its heart. It is good to be at the heart of all that with those children and with Blue Peter. I shall wear it with pride.”
