Product Description

“The bedlam of battle had begun. All around me men cried and fell to the ground, and horses reared and screamed in an agony of fear and pain. The shells whined and roared overhead, and every explosion seemed like an earthquake to us.”

In the deadly chaos of the First World War, one horse witnesses the horror of battle from both sides of the trenches. Bombarded by cannons and bullets that knock the riders from his back, Joey tells a powerful tale of true friendships surviving in terrible times. He sees the best and the worst of humanity; the power of war and the beauty of peace. This is his story.

    I thought this book is absolutely great! it made me cry in a few places but at the end it is happy. Joey (Alberts horse) gets taken off by Alberts dad to volunteer to work in the war. Very tragic story but would reccomend to everyone! Happy reading!

    I didn’t really enjoy this book, I found it lacking description and not very exciting. However, many people think it is a amazing novel, so I suggest you should give it a try: I did, but I just didn’t like it.

    Very sad but excellent storyline. I would recommend this book to people aged 11-15 who like emotionally written books.
