A powerful story of the truest friendships in the worst of wars from the award-winning former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo
This is very much a children's/YA book. I found the writing symplistic at times, the way the horse narrated very human-like. However, the plot well and truly made up for this. It was emotional, heartfelt and truly educational. Overall, a very good book for older children and an OK book for adults.I bought this book myself
