Farm Boy

The sequel to War Horse

Publisher: Harper Collins

Review

"There's an old green Fordson tractor in the back of Grandpa's barn, always covered in cornsacks." This tractor has a story - a story that unfolds when the old man takes his grandson into his confidence and discloses his secret.

Rich with historical detail and beautifully illustrated, this is a touching and inspirational portrayal of farming life and familial ties.
