Book DescriptionA gripping children's story from Britain's best-loved children's author and the man behind War Horse, Michael Morpurgo. "We all knew what was going to happen. We'd seen it before.

Laura's twin brother, Billy, disappears, and then a storm devastates everything. It seems there's little hope. But then the Zanzibar is wrecked on the island's rocks, and everything changes ...Former Children's Laureate and award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo, again demonstrates why he is considered to be the master story teller with one of his most dramatic children's stories ...The Wreck of the Zanzibar.
