This book is about a really sweet story that captures the human nature perfectly. This book is about people setting aside their differences, to come together for their survival on a desert island. All the characters are very well developed, and I think that this book may be one of Michael Morpurgo's best (close to some others though).
I recommend this to everyone as it is perfect for all ages, children and adults.
I am reading kensukes kingdon in my class and i am up to chapter 10 page 144 and so fat i think the book is amazing.I love the bond between michael and kensuke, I am very eager to finish the book and just hoping the end is good as the rest of the book
I think that kensuke's kingdom is the best book mical morpurgo has ever writen (besides toro toro)because the first line I disappeard the night before my twelth birthday makes it intresting it makes you want to read on . When I first started reading it I couldent stop reading it because it was so intresting. By Sam Roberts
Michael and his dog Stella are stranded on an island after they fall off of a boat. They are not the only inhabitants of the island. A man lives there too. The man called Kensuke has survived on the island for quite a time and lives on luxury compared to Michael's time. At first, Kensuke is hostile and untrusting towards Michael and only allows Michael to stay on 1/2 of the island. Then Kensuke slowly allows Michael into his world.
I thought that this story was so sweet and described human nature very well. The characters were very well developed.
Michael Morpurgo is an excellent author, if you've never come across him before, and this book is no exception.
'Kensuke's Kingdom' is basically a story about a boy getting stranded on a desert island. But it's beautifully done, from the cultural differences between the main characters to the ways in which their experiences subtly alter their personalities and the way they look at life.
This is an excellent read, and I highly recommend it, to anyone - regardless of what type of books they would normally read.
