Everyone should read this book, it reminds you about your inner child, about the simple things in life, the things we see everyday but do not notice, about life and death.
This book stopped me going to sleep, normally I listen to a couple of chapters then I am ready for sleep. It is a story told from the horses perspective and his friendship with the people he meets along his way. It wasnt mushy but it did make me cry a little, a story that just leads you on and on. A bit like a lovely walk where you want to see the view over the hill and it takes you on for miles. Brilliant, thank you Michael Morpurgo for writing a very special book.
