Morpurgo fielded questions from the hundreds of under-16s gathered at the New London Theatre, as part of the Society of London Theatres' Kids Week event, which aims to involve more young people in theatregoing.

A lucky few audiece members went onstage to get a closer look at the amazing horse puppet which has captured the imaginations of West End audiences.
