Despite having read prolifically for the majority of my life, I must confess to having never before read a Michael Morpurgo book. With the Warhorse film all over every form of advertising for the past year, my 8 year old son has been very keen to watch it, but we decided it would probably be best...

ProGreat story

ConsI would say too short, but it is a childrens' book

Having been to see the stage version of Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse a couple of years ago, I am now eagerly anticipating the film release. I hate watching films before I have read the book, so yesterday I finally sat down to start reading it. The book was first published in 1982 and was the...

ConsNone

My daughter won this book at school in a competition and was desperate to read it as soon as she got it home. Having watched the film I decided it was best for me to read it and then decide whether at the age of 9 she was to young to read it. I hadn't read any Michael Morpurgo books before and...

“War Horse”

Proa great read

Conswill make you cry

Review: In War Horse, Michael Morpurgo writes a really touching story of friendship and adventure that, despite the tears, I was unable to put down. So I warn you now, this was a great but heart-wrenching read, and one that will require you to keep lots of tissues close at hand. Set in the bleak...
