Not Bad For A Bad Lad by Michael Morpurgo
A powerful and inspiring tale of redemption from the author of WAR HORSE - with a personal introduction to the story from Michael Morpurgo. Includes 'Facts Behind the Story' section. "I know a good sort when I see one. That's why I've taken him on. That's why I took you on." When a young lad strays into bad behaviour and thieving, he soon finds himself in Borstal prison for young men, lonely and without hope. But when Mr Alfie, who manages the stables, asks him to care for and tame a damaged horse, both are given a second chance. Could this "bad lad"'s skill with horses help him follow his dreams?
