The heart-lifting, heart-breaking new story by Michael Morpurgo, the nation's favourite storyteller.

In the Imperial War Museum is a wooden Dachshund, carved by a German prisoner of war for the children of the British family with which he stayed after the fighting ended. This is the story of how it got there...When the Bismarck sinks; one of the only German survivors is taken on board a British ship as a prisoner of war. Sent to live with a host family, Walter must adapt to a new way of life, in the heart of an enemy country. Gradually, though, he finds a friend in ten-year-old Grace. So when the time finally comes to go back to Germany, it's an emotional parting, with Walter leaving Grace with only a carved wooden dog to remember him by. The question is, will Walter and Grace ever meet again? In 1966, with the World Cup coming to Britain, that opportunity may just have come along....

    " Little Manfred is enjoyable and well researched, but I felt that it lacked the depth of character that Morpurgo novels usually have. I really liked the historical notes at the back - a great opener for discussions with children. "
