Why The Whales Came

Multi-award-winning performer and storyteller Danyah Miller vividly brings to life another enchanting tale by Michael Morpurgo.
Gracie and Daniel have been warned to stay away from the mad Birdman - but the message in the sand tells them that the Birdman isn't what he seems.
Then they get lost in the fog and stranded on Samson Island. Should they believe the Birdman's story that the island is cursed?
Michael Morpurgo - author, poet, playwright and librettist - is known best for children's novels such as War Horse. Much loved for his "magical storytelling", Morpurgo’s recurring themes include the triumph of an outsider or survival as well as for his characters' relationships with nature. He is famous for his vivid settings such as the Cornish coast or World War I. Morpurgo became the third British Children's Laureate, from 2003 to 2005
