The Lovereading4Kids comment
Michael Morpurgo’s tender story of Joey, a brave hearted farm horse who finds himself caught up in the horrors of war, cleverly conveys both the violence and the occasional compassion, which occurs during conflict. A classic story of animal courage and bravery that has been a huge Box Office hit at the National Theatre for some years until transferring equally successfully to the New London theatre in central London. This edition has some absolutely stunning colour illustrations throughout and is published in hardback.
A small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to review War Horse. You can read their full reviews by Clicking Here.
- Lauren M, age 11 - 'This book is amazing...If you like or really love horses this is a book for you.'
- Layla K, age 11 - 'If you love or like horses read this book - it is brilliant! You will love it.'
- Jessica Bolton, age 10 - 'Although there are some sad parts it’s an amazing adventure of a normal horse sent to war.... A sad but exciting story.'
- Ryan Tamplin - 'War Horse is a long and sad book about a horse called Joey who is in a war and at the end he is stuck in no-man’s land.'
War Horse Special Colour Edition by Michael Morpurgo
In 1914, Joey, a young farm horse, is sold to the army and thrust into the midst of the war on the Western Front. With his officer, he charges towards the enemy, witnessing the horror of the frontline. But even in the desolation of the trenches, Joey's courage touches the soldiers around him.
The book has been turned into a film by Steven Spielberg - you can see a trailer below.
