Reading - Our Class Novel

As a class we read the novel Best Mate by Michael Morpurgo.
The best thing about this book was when patrick jumped into the canal to save Best Mate and the other dogs.
A question I have for the Author is why are your books about animals.
I am feeling great and excited about reading the BFG.
