Young Inklings! Young Inklings! Did you know that the real Little Manfred is in the Imperial War Museum in London. The wooden Dachshund was made out of cast-off apple boxes by a German prisoner of war. The museum doesn’t know who made this dog, but it was one of the 137,000 Germans that helped to reconstruct Britain after the second world war.
Young Inklings - a quick question! Answer the following on Michael Morpurgo's book Little Manfred and get your pick of treats from D'Lush Cafe at our next club on Saturday 29th of this month. Are you ready........
How long were Walter and Manfred prisoners of war for?
Well Young Inklings, not long to go now before we meet to have a good old chinwag about Kaspar - Prince of Cats. So I just thought I would post this video of the the author Michael Morpurgo giving a little information as to what inspired the story. Enjoy!
I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all the Young Inklings who attended last Saturday’s club to chat about Mr. Lemuel Gulliver. I learned a lot listening to your opinions on his character and, I must say, was somewhat surprised by how annoying some of you thought he was! I was also mega impressed by the stories you wrote. If you want to share your story here …well, by all means do!
Well Young Inklings, I hope you are all ready for a chit chat tomorrow about Mr. Lemuel Gulliver and his travel antics! We will also play some wacky writing games too...for example you might be asked to...write about a visit to the park with a curious crab who finds a letter in an old bottle!
Write a post and let me know what you thought of the book. Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
