      Farm Boy is the second installment to Michael Morpurgo's War Horse Series. Although this book is short and recommended to much younger readers of the first book, War Horse, the book has this imprint of Morpurgo's writing style even you turn the pages upside down. The usage of thorough old country mouse English, the pre- and post- World War 1 setting, the long beautiful and struggling narrative, the patience and of course, the much awaited Morpurgo's love to horses.In Farm Boy, Morpurgo changed s [...]

      I finished War Horse earlier in the week and although I wouldn't say it was fantastic I did enjoy it and so when I saw there was a sequel I decided I should read that too. So I requested this from the library and it came in pretty quickly, when I got it I was surprised by how small it was, just 110 pages and half of those were covered in illustrations. Not much of a story then!This literally took me 20 minutes to read it was so quick and I have to say I was very disappointed. This isn't really a [...]

      'Farm Boy' is a cute short story based on the descendants of the characters from 'War Horse'. Unfortunately, it is missing two of the key items that made 'War Horse' so compelling: the horse's point of view and World War I.This book is incredibly short (my edition is 106 pages of large type and many large illustrations), so it is also nowhere near as in depth as the first installment. It is told from the point of view of Albert's great-great grandson while he visits his own grandfather (Albert's [...]

      Anyone expecting the excitment and anguish of war Horse,this is not the book, it is a sequel but about the great grandson of the original war horse. Joey and his owner return from the war as heros and then settle down back into life on the farm,but soon horses will not be needed on the farms or in the towns with the invention of tractors and cars. One day Joey and his owner get involved in a bet to see who can plough better the tractor or a horse drawn plough, the war horse spirit returns Joey i [...]

      Farm Boy by Michael Morpurgo deserves ten stars out of five but as there are only five stars available that will have to do. In my complete ignorance I only realised when I started the book that it is the sequel to War Horse, but I actually enjoyed it more than War Horse (mainly because Joey wasn’t the narrator).There are fantastic illustrations from the start, which place you mentally back in time as Grandpa reminiscences about the past, including memories of the first world war and his favou [...]

      I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I did with War Horse, but it’s a nice short story and has a really cute feeling about it. I was able to read it very quickly and couldn’t help but feel like it was more like an afterthought than anything else, but I did enjoy it and it would be perfect for a bed time story, I liked this book very much.

      A beautifully written sequel to War Horse. You must read War Horse first to fully comprehend the peaceful simplicity of farm life after the horrors of war. I loved the secret his grand dad had kept all those years and there is a nobility to the relationship between the grandfather and his grandson. This book would also tie into a study of Aesop's Fables & the Hare and The Tortoise. I love Michael Morpurgo's easy style of writing. Your 8 to 14 year old children will gain so much from reading [...]

      Farm Boy, Michael MarpurgoI found ‘Farm Boy’ to be a heart-warming tale about an unlikely relationship between a young boy and his grandfather. The young boy loved spending his free time on his grandfather’s farm. He would spend hours playing on an old tractor in the barn, pretending to be out in the fields ploughing. The grandfather would sit and tell the young boy of stories from the past, about his father serving in World War 1 and of his father’s love for his horse Joey, whom he join [...]

      Farm Boy is the sequel to War Horse and is set in the same Devon village and continues the tale of the horse Joey and Albert, his owner.The story is narrated by Albert’s teenage great grandson, who lives in London but spends most of his holidays in the countryside with his beloved grandfather, Albert’s son. During this time he hears tales of how Joey was sold to the cavalry and sent to the warfront in France and how 14 year old Albert was so distraught he joined up to find him."Now there’s [...]

      “Farm Boy” is the short but sweet sequel to “War Horse.” Although having read the first book will give readers a deeper understanding of the characters, it is not essential because the main account is summarized. Written in down-to-earth language, “Farm Boy” is narrated by the great-grandson of the Corporal who owned the famous horse, Joey. He is a self-proclaimed town boy, and when his grandfather makes an unexpected request that requires spending several months working on his farm, [...]

      Farm Boy is the sequel to War Horse, by Michael Morpurgo. The story is narrated by the great-grandson of Albert, the owner of Joey. He goes to stay with his grandfather, who is Albert's son, on the old family farm. He hears the story of Albert and Joey's war years and also learns a secret that his grandfather has hidden for years--he is unable to read or write. He begins to teach his grandfather, who promises to pay him well for the lessons. But the young man earns something far richer--as he he [...]

      This is the type of book that I like to read as I like books that are slow and I will always be curious of what will happen. While reading the book, I learn some new words as well as the life in the farm that was something I did not really know of and interested about.

    • Louise says:

      nice little sequel to War Horse (though eldest child was confused by a few things that we dont remember being in war horse) telling the story of Albert and Joey even further.quickest read ever as more illustrations than text, but we liked knowing what happened to them both after the war.

    • Chloe Felton says:

      I liked this book but not as much as the first war horse book

    • Patrice says:

      While not as good as Warhorse, it is an endearing story with a bit of a John Henry folktale feel to it. The set up with a frame story adds to the anecdotal sense. But it is much shorter than Warhorse and is still half or more illustration. It isn't that the pictures are pretty or don't enrich the story, but there is a lot of unexplored plot space. Even by youth fiction length standards, I would consider this a short story more than a novel or novella.

      Thought I'd start my 2018 reading challenge with one of my favourite authors books.This was an easy and enjoyable read, I started and finished it on the train back to university. It was a nice, sweet ending to the story of Joey and Corporals companionship. If you enjoyed War Horse, you will most likely enjoy this, although it is nowhere near as heart wrenching as the first novel, it is still a delight to read, a classic Morpurgo story.

    • Hannah JoyS. says:

      I didn't know that there was a sequel to the War Horse book but then I found this and I had to read it.It was a very nice read. I started it one evening and finished in bed the next morning.It is two generations after Albert in the first book. I took a minute to figure this out. A short, simple read that I enjoyed.

    • thelittlebooklover says:

      What an awful book. I was so excited for a War Horse sequel and this book completely disappointed me. Absolute rubbish: awful plot and generally rubbish writing. Not what I expected from Michael Morpurgo.

    • Mary K. says:

      A sweet sequel to the initial story. I do enjoy juvenile literature. When I was a single-digit reader there were not all these wonderful stories and I love going back to my "inner child" by reading them now.

    • Kathy Sheehan says:

      A wonderful short story of love and respect between generations. As a grandparent, this book made me happy thinking about the love between grandparent and grandchild, and how we learn from each other if we only open up and listen.

    • Opticalillusion says:

      If you are looking for a quick fun read then this is a great one for you to read

    • Darshn says:

      It wasn't the best book, but it was quite good.

    • Adele Wharton says:

      A lovely touching story, and the perfect sequel to War Horse as we find out what became of Joey after the war.

    • Nuala Hadley says:

      After reading War Horse I looked forward to this book but although I enjoyed it, it didn't match up to its prequel.

    • Phillip says:

      3.75 Stars

    • Alejandro Kauderer Navas says:

      Se lee prácticamente en nada. Le doy 3,5 estrellas porque creía que se iba a centrar más en Joey, el caballo, y solo cuenta una historia seré un tractor. Me esperaba más.

    • Garry Schofield says:

      Not a patch on war horse but worth a read

    • Erik Schalk says:

      This book is very bad never read because it will be a waste for at least 2 hours of your life

    • Lukas says:

      I think that Farm Boy is really interesting and it basically follows up on War Horse. It is about what happens after Joey (the horse)comes back from the war. The important characters are Zoey, Joey because they are in most of the book and they are the highlight of this book. The author is a British man that is Micheal Morpurgo. The genera is a historic fiction story. I think that is is interesting about how the author tells the story,it is by a old man telling his grand son the story of his hist [...]
