While we’re in war zone, let’s time travel back to World War I. This post is about a book called War Horse, by Micheal Morpurgo.
Joey is just an ordinary horse working on a farm with his best friend, Albert. (Albert is a human) But when Joey goes to war, Albert doesn’t get to go with him! Will they ever see each other again?
My favorite part of the book is when Joey and his horse friend, Topthorn get a break from the war and go to live with a little girl named Emily and her grandfather. A sweet friendship develops and they become fast friends. There is a bit of gore in this book, and if you aren’t interested in World War I, you might not like this book. But other than that, I think you will! War Horse is fairly advanced reading, so I’d recommend it for girls (or boys) 10 and up. Once you finish the book, there is also a movie out based on the book, but your parents might not let you watch it because it’s PG-13. I hope you enjoy reading this book!
