“I hope you like my story, I wrote it for you just to show I could. It’s about the old tractor and it’s about Joey and it’s about me”
Award-winning Michael Morpurgo has written a compelling sequel to his much loved novel, War Horse. It’s a moving account of the changing face of the English countryside and a beautifully-crafted reminder that stories can really reach out across generations.
"Amazingly, Farm Boy is the only sequel that Michael Morpurgo has ever written, picking up the story of Joey and Albert from War Horse and bringing it right up to date in the company of Albert's son, now in his late seventies, and great grandson, down visiting his grandfather on the farm that's been in his family for over a hundred years. It's a funny touching tale about four generations of one family, about tractors versus horses, and above all about the transformational power of stories and storytelling."
