Praise for Michael Morpurgo:
“Michael Morpurgo writes brilliantly about war and animals, conveying the big emotions without preaching.” Guardian
“Champagne quality over a wide range of subjects.” Daily Telegraph
“There are few children’s writers as compelling as Michael Morpurgo.” Daily Express
“Morpurgo, as always, is subtle and skilful, and incorporates social and moral issues into his writing without being self-righteous or detracting from the quality of the narrative”
Elizabeth Reilly, British Council
“The former children's laureate has the happy knack of speaking to both child and adult readers.” Guardian--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Back Cover
Robbie, football fan and animal lover, runs after his dog one day when he chases a cat and is hit by a car. Unconscious, but conscious, Robbie lies in hospital, unable to speak, move or eat. But he can hear; he is aware, even though his family and friends don’t know this. Inside his head, we hear Robbie’s thoughts; on his Mum and sister, why his parents are separated. His friends and family try desperately to reach him – even Zola, his favourite Chelsea footballer, comes to see him. And still Robbie can’t ‘wake up’. Until one day, against hospital rules, Dad brings Lucky into the hospital. Can Lucky bring Robbie back to life?--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Robbie is very worried about Lucky, mum and little sister Ellie are at the hospital but Robbie has gone into a coma, he can see and hear everything but can not move or speak, his dad arrives as well, Robbie wants them to get back together, they must try everything to wake Robbie up, it has been over six weeks, if he doesn't respond soon they will allow him to die
Nice short story but predictable
Ps: I still really like this book though because it is the best book I have ever read.
