War Horse Book Review

Standard

I just finished reading War Horse, a great book by Michael Morpurgo, and my second favorite book of all time!

Joey is a farm horse who lives in England with his master, Albert, and his owner, Albert’s father.  Albert was Joey’s trainer and his best friend.  He trained him to do farm work as a plow horse.  Joey lived a great life until Albert’s father sold him to the army.  He is forced to work on the battlefield, wondering when the war will ever come to an end.  And when it does, will he ever see Albert again?
This is a great book, and I think that most of my friends would like it; they love books about animals!

My favorite character in the book would be Joey; he works through so much, and he still believes that he’ll find Albert again.

Happy reading!

  1. I’m sure you already know they have a movie made of this story. I have seen it advertised on TV recently and very often. Maybe John and Emily will take you to see it. However, most of the time, the book is better than the movie but I think it would be interesting to be able to compare. Just a thought from your Grandma’s perspective!!!! Love you very much and would love to hear from you in the form of a card or letter. Grandma Judy
