Good to re read after seeing stage show and film
Just seen the stage play and wanted to re read the book. Brilliant but very moving story told from the horses point of view. Get the tissues ready!
For both boys and girls and adults too
I sat down and read the book. MM's books are always very readable with good simple stories that appeal to me. This was no exception; and with a horse, even better. The time of the story is around the First World War. I thought that the environment of that time was well brought out by MM and contributed strongly to the whole ambiance of the story.
