Bring home your very own WAR HORSE!

Michael Morpurgo's WAR HORSE is the internationally acclaimed book that recounts the story of World War I as seen through the eyes of a cavalry horse named Joey, and the boy who loves him, Albert. Published in 1982 and a runner-up for the famed Whitbread Prize, WAR HORSE begins in England, where Joey is owned by a poor farmer, and is the beloved friend of the farmer's son, Albert. When the war breaks out, Albert's father sells Joey to the cavalry, leaving Albert heartbroken. Too young to enlist, Albert takes off to search for Joey. Murpurgo's compelling tale follows Joey and Albert from separation to reunion on their incredible journey filled with peril, heartache, hope and humanity.

In October 2007, WAR HORSE was brought to life on the stage atLondon's National Theatre, the result of a brilliant collaboration by the Handspring Puppet Company and directors Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris. The production moved to the West End in 2009, and it opened inNew York Cityin April 2011 at the Vivian Beaumont Theater. WAR HORSE also attracted the attention of director Steven Spielberg whose live action film WAR HORSE filmed entirely inEngland, opened December 2011.
