(Photograph) - Michael Morpurgo's attempt at the national writing test for 11-year-olds - a story entitled 'Man-eater' - is published in The TES today. Mr Morpurgo, children's laureate and author of 97 books, said the test was 'enormously difficult'. But the marker praised his sentence structure and (mostly) accurate punctuation. News, 7.
