Farm Boy: The Sequel to War HorseFeatured
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.
Nice Addition to War Horse.
This is billed as the sequel to War Horse but it's really not. While it mentions Albert and Joey, the focus is more on the bonds of family, the love of horses and the importance of literacy. It's well written and is told from alternating POV's, both of which are human this time. The illustrations are good and they enhance the story nicely.
