“I hope you like my story – I wrote it for you just to show I could. It’s about the old tractor and it’s about Joey and it’s about me.’
Michael Morpurgo’s compelling sequel to the award-winning War Horse is a moving account of the changing face of the English countryside and a beautifully-crafted reminder that stories really can reach out across the generations, recounted with old-fashioned earnest simplicity.
“Amazingly, Farm Boy is the only sequel that Michael Morpurgo has ever written, picking up the story of Joey and Albert from War Horse and bringing it right up to date in the company of Albert’s son, now in his late seventies, and great grandson, down visiting his grandfather on the farm. It’s a funny touching tale about four generations of one family, about tractors versus horses, and above all about the transformational power of stories and storytelling.” – Daniel Buckroyd, Director
