Read by Derek Jacobi and Michael Morpurgo
Set on a farm in rural Devon, this is a collection of Grandpa's reminiscences and stories as told to his grandson. Grandpa's nature and his touching relationship with the boy is evoked superbly by Michael Morpurgo's writing.
This two-voice read brings the characters to life as the story of Grandpa's `shame' (the fact that he cannot read and write) unfolds.
Derek Jacobi is sensitive and compelling in the role of Grandpa, inspiring a true sense of achievement and triumph as he finally tells his own story in his own words.
