About the Book

A heartfelt tale of an orphaned boy in search of family from War Horse author and former Children's Laureate, 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?

Long Way Home is a thoughtful tale about orphans, family, love and finding a place one can call home.
