Children's writer Michael Morpurgo is no stranger to the performing arts - his Why the Whales Came was adapted for the screen in 1988 with Paul Scofield starring, and many are his forays into television and radio.
Now the grandfather of six plans to take the Edinburgh Fringe Festival by storm with a new version of Aesop's Fables.
