Joey was the last working horse on the farm, the apple of Grandpa’s eye. In War Horse, Joey was sent to serve on the frontlines of the First World War. So Grandpa joined the cavalry to find Joey and fight beside him. Now Farm Boy brings us forward fifty years, as Grandpa shares Joey’s story with his young grandson. In return for his precious words, can the boy help Grandpa to overcome a shameful secret which he has kept hidden for years? A boy gives his grandfather a great gift, and receives one in return, in this masterful novel. With fabulous artwork by Michael Foreman, it celebrates rural English life and the bond between young and old.
