This month, children’s magazine AdventureBox is proud to present Sam’s Duck, by renowned British award-winning author Michael Morpurgo. Michael is, in his own words, "oldish, married with three children, and a grandfather six times over." Besides that, Michael is one of the best storytellers of our times.

This month’s story is about Sam, a young London boy who goes on a school visit to a farm. He has a brilliant time there until he meets a nasty little man who is mean to animals...The subject of cruelty to animals is one that is very close to the author’s heart. The story is based on Michael’s own experiences on his charity Farms For City Children which he founded in 1976 with his wife Clare. This organization aims to expand the horizons of children from towns and cities all over the country by offering them a week in the countryside living together on one of the farms.

In this special issue you can also read an interview with the author and find out how you can win a fabulous prize: a set of 5 books by Michael Morpurgo!

AdventureBox, which is a unique monthly publication, aims to stimulate children’s reading skills and imagination. Each month, young readers embark on an exciting reading and learning adventure: illustrated novel, comic-strips, craft activities, quizzes and games... All this in a single issue.

AdventureBox is also published in French, Spanish and Catalan, and is read all around the world. For the first time the same story is published in all international versions at the same time. This means that this month, 3 million children will discover Sam’s Duck!
