The heartwarming sequel to Michael Morpurgo's bestselling War Horse!
Farm Boy is the heartwarming sequel to War Horse, the beloved novel that has now been made into a play and a major motion picture.
Albert's son is all grown up, an old man now. But he has a shameful secret he's kept to himself his whole life. As he comes to terms with the truth, he tells stories of the farm of his childhood--his war hero dad, skipping school to help with the harvest, and of course the wonderful horses, Joey and Zoey.
The charming book speaks to the bond between generations, and captures the spirit of rural life and the love of horses.
