Overview

Farm Boy is the heartwarming sequel to War Horse, the beloved novel that has been made into a hit play and a major motion picture. For years, Joey was a war horse, pulling ambulance carts and artillery through the battlefields of World War I. When he finally returned home to Albert and the farm, he was treated like a hero. But his adventures had only just begun. Now, generations later, Albert's son loves to tell his own grandson stories about the remarkable horse. He tells him of Joey's feats in the war, and of the time when the family risked everything betting that Joey could win a daring race. As he tells the stories, he slowly reveals a shameful secret--a secret that he's kept to himself for years. This charming book speaks to the bond between generations, and captures the spirit of rural life and the love of horses.

I am certainly disappointed in B& N. i feel taken advantage of & duped!! After purchasing, reading & enjoying "WAR HORSE"', for B&N to advertise this pamphlet (27 pages) as a novel & sequel & then to further have the unmitigated gall to charge $5+ is an outrage. Their intent can be described as nothing less than deception. As much as I have enjoyed my nook & all of my previous purchases, i have a good mind to trade in the entire nook experience in favor the kindle & Amazon! THE ICING ON THE CAKE: Customer service is OITSOURCED & totally worthless! AMAZON here i come!

This is a story that is about Alberts son and granson. It takes you to a nice little story about how the gransom teaches hos grandpa to read and write. And a story about Albert and some other guy in a plow race. A good story for antone who really liked warhorse. An has a little time their hands.

“Farm Boy” by Michael Morpurgo the sequel to “War Horse” is a heartwarming story about the relationship between a young boy and his grandfather. This delightful book recaptures the time when history was passed down through the stories retold by our grandparents. The relationship between the young boy and his grandfather is precious and encouraging. The author weaves the tale in storytelling fashion that makes this book a quick and enjoyable read. There is drama and suspense as well as heartfelt love between the boy and his grandfather as well as the grandfather and his horse. I would encourage any young boy to pick it up and read it. I enjoyed the whimsical feel of days gone by and the historical perspective of life in the past. (rev. C. Delorge) An engaging early chapter book/reader for the elementary student that is replete with lots of soft illustrations by Michael Foreman done in black and white pen and ink.

Who would pay $5 to read a twenty- paged book about some guy learning to read and write? Don't waste your time with this book but I loved War Horse.
