Review: “Farm Boy” by Michael Morpurgo the sequel to “War Horse” is a heartwarming story about the relationship between a young boy and his grandfather. This delightful book recaptures the time when history was passed down through the stories retold by our grandparents. The relationship between the young boy and his grandfather is precious and encouraging.
The author weaves the tale in storytelling fashion that makes this book a quick and enjoyable read. There is drama and suspense as well as heartfelt love between the boy and his grandfather as well as the grandfather and his horse.
I would encourage any young boy to pick it up and read it. I enjoyed the whimsical feel of days gone by and the historical perspective of life in the past. (rev. C. Delorge)
An engaging early chapter book/reader for the elementary student that is replete with lots of soft illustrations by Michael Foreman done in black and white pen and ink.
