During a stay at his grandfather's farm in Devon, a young boy discovers how different farming was when his grandfather was a boy, with great horses pulling the plows. Grandpa tells him the story of his own father's favorite horse, Joey, who was ...
taken away during World War I to pull the army's heavy guns--and how, miraculously, horse and owner are reunited. But when Grandpa reveals his long-held secret about his old green tractor, his grandson discovers that it is a story that will change his life. This poignant tale is beautifully depicted by Michael Foreman, whose illustrations capture the spirit of rural life. Michael Morpurgo is a recent winner of Britain's prestigious Smarties and Whitbread Prizes. Michael Foreman's illustrations have won him top awards and international acclaim.
