Morpurgo's stories are great for children. Here we have messages written in shells upon the sand from the The Bird Man in the summer of 1914.A view of Samson from Tresco. Samson is one of the uninhabited islands of the Isles of Scilly

I think I may have read this in school a long time ago. I swear I remember reading a book about Narwhales but can't remember the title. I didn't much care for it though.
