Long Way Home is a heartfelt tale of an orphaned boy in search of family from Britain's best-loved children's author, Michael Morpurgo. Another summer. Another foster family. George has already made up his mind to run away, back to the children's home. None of the previous families have wanted him. Why should the Dyers be any different? But George begins to feel at ease with Tom Dyer and his sister Storme, even happy, and changes his mind. He could even feel at home with them - couldn't he? Former Children's Laureate and award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo, demonstrates why he is considered to be the master story teller with this book about orphans, family, love and finding a place one can call home.
