It’s a great book and is a good sequel to War Horse. It tells us a little more about the story as well.

This book is truly amazing and definitely lives up to War Horse! I wasnt as keen on war horse as I was to Farm Boy, I thought Farm Boy had a lot more feeling and understanding behind it and emotion which you could feel as the reader., so this made it a bit ore exciting. I only wise that this book was longer like War Horse and then maybe you would of known the characters a lot better. I would recommend this book to younger readers like 8-12 year olds as it is quite a short book and its certainly easy to understand.
This book is about a very special and talented horse called Joey who had been sent to go into war at an early age. During his experience on the front lines, Joey saw a lot of death, horse and human, but carried on. This is the story of a grandad telling his grandson all about Joey and what it was like but Grandpa tells his Grandson a lot more than he’s ever told anyone before…
This is a very heart warming book and defiantly worth reading!

I loved this book because as I loved War Horse, I really wanted to know what happened to Joey after the war and it was much better than I expected!

Its a beautifully told story but not as emotional and deeply told as War horse. But it is told in a good way and its easy to understand. Michael managed to get a moral across throughout the book which is always nice in a book, and if you read this faboulous book you will be deeply entwined in it as I was even though it only took me a morning to read it.:) You SHOULD read this book :)
