Michael Morpurgo Farm Boy

Read by Derek Jacobi

Set on a farm in rural Devon, Farm Boy is a collection of Grandpas reminiscences and stories, touchingly told to his grandson.

Joey was the last working horse on the farm, and the apple of Grandpas eye. In War Horse, published 12 years ago, Joey was sent away from the farm to be a warhorse in World War I. Grandpa had joined the cavalry in order to find, and fight, with Joey.

Set on a farm in rural Devon, Farm Boy is a collection of Grandpas reminiscences and stories, touchingly told to his grandson.

Joey was the last working horse on the farm, and the apple of Grandpas eye. In War Horse, published 12 years ago, Joey was sent away from the farm to be a warhorse in World War I. Grandpa had joined the cavalry in order to find, and fight, with Joey.

Farm Boy brings us forward 50 years, with Grandpa not only telling his grandson Joeys story but also a shameful secret which he has held for years — Grandpa has never learned to read and write. The story is set in Iddesleigh in Devon and lovingly evokes the bonds between farm and farmer; grandson and grandfather. The spirit of rural life is superbly captured in Michael Morpurgos writing.
