War Horse illustrated by Rae Smith
Dramatic, arresting and at times stark, Rae Smith’s remarkable illustrations bring Michael Morpurgo’s moving story of war and reconciliation vividly to life. The perfect gift for fans of War Horse and the National Theatre show which begins its UK tour in September 2013. An incredibly moving story about one horse’s experience in the deadly chaos of the First World War. In 1914, Joey, a young farm horse from Devon, is sold to the army and thrust into the midst of war on both sides of the trenches on the Western Front. Bombarded by guns and suffering, Joey tells a powerful story of humanity and friendship that touches people of all ages.
