War Horse by Michael Morpurgo
Rate this book
Clear rating
I'm not usually a fan of stories told from an animal's POV, but Michael Morpurgo did a good job by allowing the horse, Joey, to remain a horse. Although told from Joey's perspective, he never talked to the other horses or animals, and he didn't try ...more
