The Lovereading4Kids comment
All the magic of the National Theatre’s award-winning production of War Horse is brought to life in this beautifully designed edition of Michael Morpurgo’s classic. Rae Smith’s iconic designs for the sets, costumes and the rest vividly bring the story to life. A centre page fold-out giving packs an enormous punch as it brings to life the terrible experiences of being in the trenches.
