Listen to the Moon by Michael Morpurgo
Here is a story for you to listen to - I have recorded the first few chapters and will add them
as I record them.
The story is set in 1915 in the Scilly Isles which are at the bottom of England, off Cornwall. Nowadays you can reach them by boat, plane or helicopter. Alfie and his dad find a little girl on one of the small islands. She is alone and only says one word.
I hope you enjoy it.
Chapter 1: Be good fish, be nice fish
