The former Children’s Laureate is on masterly form with this intriguing tale set in the Isles of Scilly during World War I.

When a young girl is found on an uninhabited island, no one knows where she came from or even how she got there, and she has lost the ability to communicate. But soon rumours begin to circulate that the ‘mermaid’ they have rescued is actually a German, and tensions begin to rise. Morpurgo’s story examines the power of friendship and families, and casts light over the murky dangers of wartime jingoism that will may well strike a chord with modern readers. Already shortlisted for the Costa Children’s Book Award. HarperCollins, out now. Age: 9+
