Publisher Description

In 1914, Joey, a beautiful bay-red foal with a distinctive cross on his nose, is sold to the army and thrust into the midst of the war on the Western Front. With his officer, he charges toward the enemy, witnessing the horror of the battles in France. But even in the desolation of the trenches, Joey's courage touches the soldiers around him and he is able to find warmth and hope. But his heart aches for Albert, the farmer's son he left behind. Will he ever see his true master again?

Fantastic

This is one of the most wonderful and emotional books I have ever read. I cried on nearly page in both sadness and joy, and I highly recommend war horse to anybody who loves horses or just a wonderfully written novel. The play is fantastic and I am looking forward to the movie

Amazing!

We saw the live stage play in London this year. Amazing when you see it live and through the eyes of Joey, the horse. He tells the story in Marpurgo's book. The stage play used live, life-size puppets with people inside. You have to go to the Warhorse website to see a sample of the puppets. USA won't get to see that version. Too bad; it makes more sense than what Spielberg does on the screen. We have read the book. Excellent.
