They stay on their side, we stay ours. Toby Jenkins doesn't like boarding school. He gets called Jinks and thinks he will never fit in. But then he meets a strange boy named Christopher who may have special powers. When the village boy 'oiks' start a war with the schoolboy 'toffs', Toby is caught in the middle. Can Christopher provide the miracle that Toby needs? Former Children's Laureate and award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo, again demonstrates why he is considered to be the master story teller with The War of Jenkins' Ear, a much-loved and magical tale
