The extraordinary sequel to War Horse
Joey was the last working horse on the farm, and the apple of Grandpa’s eye. When Joey was sent away to be a warhorse in the First World War, Grandpa joined the cavalry in order to find Joey and fight with him.
Farm Boy brings us forward fifty years, as Grandpa tells his grandson all about Joey, and reveals a secret which he has kept to himself all these years . . .
Farm Boy is the extraordinary sequel to War Horse now celebrating its 40th anniversary
