Author Michael Morpurgo has become a household name because of his most famous novel, War Horse, which has been made into a stage play and, more recently, a popular feature film directed by Steven Spielberg.
School Reporters from Stoke Damerel Community College in Plymouth talked to him about his success and what influences his writing - and were given a sneak preview of the plot for his latest book, A Medal for Leroy.
