'Listen to the moon' is a beautiful story that is set in 1915. Michael Morpurgo writes from two perspectives.
One is about a boy called Alfie who lives in the Scilly Isles. On a beautiful day in May Alfie doesn't go to school but instead goes with his father fishing. When they hear a weird sound coming from St. Helens they go and have a look. They weird sound appears to come from a little white girl. She doesn't look healthy, is almost dead and her ankle is swollen. As quick as they can they take her with them home. It turns out that she can't or doesn't want to speak, in the beginning she stays in bed and her memory is gone.
The other perspective is from the live story from the girl and how she got to the island like that. So bit by bit the reader gets to know how everything happened and what for a terrible things had happend to the girl.

The moon is an important thing in the book because it unites the girl with her dad in a special way.

This book shows how terrible people can be to each other and how crazy the war maked people. People acted really terrible and believed things that they normally never would've believed if the war wasn't there with all the Germans and horrible things that happened. I learnt that war is the most terrible thing that can happen to the world so we need to do everything so there will NEVER be war again!
