Shadow by Michael Morpurgo - review

'If I had to rate this book out of five I would give it a definite five!'

Shadow, by Micheal Morpurgo, is an amazing book, its got an amazing plot. The story is about a refugee, called Aman, who moved from Afghanistan, to England. The story is told by three different people.

This book is great for people aged 10 to 14 and those who love dogs. I think that every one should read this book, because it's amazing, although it's extremely sad.

If I had to rate this book out of five I would give it a definite five!
