This book was soooo good it’s about a young boy named Ashley who leaves his father in the war of China and goes with his Uncle Sung into the mountains of Tibet. Item despatched quickly and as described, but damaged in transit due to plastic wrap packaging being inadequate protection.He is riding Oona the elephant on the beach when a tsunami wave comes crashing in and Oona begins to run. He spends half his life mucking out sheds with the children, feeding sheep or milking cows; the other half he spends dreaming up and writing stories for children. Published by Viking Kestrel, /1987, 1st US, nl; aqua cloth boards, tan endpapers, in aqua jacket with Ashley in a mountain landscape; 8vo; 146 pp. King of the Cloud Forests is a much loved story of bravery and compassion in the face of war and loss, from the author of War Horse. this was so well written that for a second i genuinely thought it was realistic that a man could get lost and some monkey species would take care of him, name them his king and he would learn their language.

Morpurgo's writing is clean and cohesive, padded with edifying descriptions and details that give the world and Ashley's thoughts depth without impeding the pace or easy digestion of the story. On their summer holidays in Wales, Michael and his little cousin Polly are told magical tales by an old Russian sea captain.It turned out to have been the worst mistake he could have ever made – and one which he must put right before it is too late. Whichever you are, this is an amazing story and Morpurgo deserves the title, 'The Master Storyteller'. I first read it a frightening 30 years ago, so this is a re-read of a treasured paperback, signed by the author with the inscription,"Love from the Yetis". War and History: The book talks about the history of missionaries in China and the Japanese invasion of China.
