From master storyteller Michael Morpurgo comes an incredibly moving story about one horse's experience in the deadly chaos of the first world war.
In 1914, Joey, a young farm horse, is sold to the army and thrust into the midst of the war on the Western Front. With his officer, he charges towards the enemy, witnessing the horror of the frontline.
But even in the desolation of the trenches, Joey's courage touches the soldiers around him.
