War Horse by Michael Morpurgo

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

War Horse is a very emotive tale by one of the best authors of children’s books.

You may think to cry over this book you will  have to love horses, you would be incorrect.

Set in one of the worst wars, a moving story of finding out just who your friends are.

Englishmen and Germans have only one thing in common; they both care  for horses. Could one lost horse taken in by the enemy, end the war?

Here is a snippet from the book : ‘ I saw the grey soldiers ahead of us raise their rifles and heard the death rattle of a machine gun . . . ‘

This a brilliant book ideal for all ages ; adults, children and teens alike.
