About the Book

Farm Boy is the extraordinary sequel to the beloved modern classic, War Horse.

"There was an old green Fordson tractor in the back of Grandpa’s barn, always covered in cornsacks. When I was very little, I used to go in there, pull off the cornsacks, climb up and drive it all over the farm"

Fifty years ago, Grandpa’s horse Joey was sent away from the family farm to be a warhorse in World War I, and Grandpa joined the cavalry to find Joey and fight with him. Now Grandpa is telling his grandson all about Joey and revealing a secret which he has kept to himself all these years . . .

Michael Foreman’s numerous books for children have earned him widespread recognition as one of the world’s leading illustrators. He has regularly collaborated with Terry Jones, Michael Morpurgo and others while several of his own books are also considered modern classics.
