♦Description : “While sailing around the world with his parents, Michael falls to the sea. When he regains consciousness, he finds himself with his dog on a lost island in the middle of the Pacific! How to survive without food and shelter? But the island is not deserted and a mysterious stranger seems to be watching over Michael. This is the beginning of an adventure that will never forget the young boy …
The storytelling talent of Michael Morpurgo is expressed in the story of a modern Robinson, captivating and full of humanity. A story of strong and moving friendship.”
“I disappeared the day before the birthday of my twelve years. July 28, 1988. Today only, I can finally tell all this extraordinary story, the true story of my disappearance. Kensuké had made me promise not to say anything, nothing at all until at least ten years had elapsed. It was almost the last thing he told me. I promised and I had to live in the lie. I could have let the sleepy lies sleep, but more than ten years have passed now. I went to high school, to university and I had time to think. I owe to my family and friends, to all those I have deceived so long, the truth about my long disappearance, the way I survived after narrowly escaping death.
But I also have another reason to talk, a much better reason. Kensuke was a great man, a good man, and he was my friend. I want the world to know him as I knew him.
Until about eleven, until the letter arrived, I led an ordinary life. There were four of us at home: my mother, my father, Stella and me. Stella Artois is my dog, with one ear erect and the other falling, a black and white shepherd who always seemed to know in advance what would happen. But even she could not have predicted that a letter would change our lives forever. In retrospect, there was a regularity, a certain monotony in my early childhood.”
