MAJOR PUBLISHING EVENT: MICHAEL MORPURGO'S CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED WAR HORSE ADAPTED FOR A PICTURE BOOK AUDIENCE!

Master storyteller Michael Morpurgo has adapted his much-loved novel, War Horse, for a picture book audience. This
powerful book for younger readers tells the enduring story of a friendship between a boy and his horse and is a gateway to help children understand the history and deadly chaos of the First World War. As we move beyond centenary commemorations and continue to strive for peace across the world, War Horse remains an important book for generations to come.
Review for the novel:
War Horse is a story of universal suffering for a universal audience by a writer who 'has
the happy knack of speaking to both child and adult readers' - The Guardian
Michael Morpurgo has written more than one hundred books for children and won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children's Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times.
