The Wreck of the Zanzibar

The Wreck of the Zanzibar, by Michael Morpurgo: I thought that this book was really well written and a very interesting story. The story is about The Dairy Of Laura Perryman and how her life was years ago on an island called Bryher. My favorite part was that the book is about a diary but written in the form of a story. I think that this is a good story that people should read.

The Wreck of the Zanzibar, by Michael Morpurgo: This book is about the diary of Laura Perryman and her life years ago on the islands of Scilly. Laura died and everyone in her family received something from her. Her nephew got her diary… which tells us the main part of the book… There is a watercolor painting on the cover of a four-masted ship keeling over in a storm and heading for the rocks. I would recommend this book to young readers because it is a bit sad.

The Wreck of the Zanzibar by Michael Morpurgo: I think this book is very well written and original because it starts in a normal book style but then it twists the story into diary format, which I find makes the book unique and different from others. In the book we hear about the diary of Laura Perryman and how she lives on the remote island of Bryher, and also about her brother Billy, and his adventures. I’d definitely advise you to read this book because it represents the issues of family and life.
