Boy Giant: Son of Gulliver

Michael Morpurgo

Sunday 13th October 15:40 - 16:40 | Northwood House

Michael Morpurgo returns to the Red Funnel Isle of Wight Festival to speak about his new novel Boy Giant. Inspired by Gulliver’s Travels, Boy Giant is the story of Omar, a young refugee fleeing from his war torn country. After a dangerous crossing, he is washed up on an island he hopes is England. However, as he discovers this is an island like no other, called Lilliput, full of tiny people. In this timely novel Morpurgo explores ideas about showing kindness to strangers, and the need to cooperate.
