War Horse by Michael Morpurgo

Recommended for lower school

Michael Morpurgo has been described as a “master storyteller” and if you haven’t yet read any of his books then perhaps this is the one to try! It is the moving story of an incredible friendship that spans many years but it’s more than just that, it’s also a story of war, separation and hope even in life’s darkest moments. We read of events through the eyes of our main character, Joey who has a rather unique perspective on the world. Read the story to discover why…

Finally, if you ever get a chance to see the National Theatre’s production of War Horse brought to life on the stage with the help of Handspring Puppet Co., it is an opportunity not to be missed!
