This is a double wow book for me! Joey, the war horse, tells about his adventures during World War 1 and the special bond he has with a young boy named Albert. At only 160 pages or so, it goes very fast. I loved it! I look forward to seeing the movie which is coming out on Christmas.
(Gerard's review)

War Horse is a touching book that kept my interest all through. Although it is a children's book, I enjoyed it but must admit I got teary-eyed reading it. Parts were very sad but I loved the ending! Joey, the horse, tells his story about living on a farm with a boy named Albert and then being sold to the army because Albert's dad needed money to save his farm. The horse goes through a lot but Albert never gives up looking for him.

Kate Waters I love this book one of the thing I will all ways say READ IT!

Karen & Gerard We just saw the movie and it is great too! It follows the book all the way through and was a tear-jerker. We felt so bad for the poor horse.
