The scarce first edition of the book that was to serve as an inspiration for both an award-winning stage-play (2007) and an acclaimed film adaptation (2011) by Steven Spielberg. The story recounts the experiences of Joey, a horse purchased by the Army for service in First World War France and the attempts of young Albert, his previous owner, to bring him safely home. Morpurgo wrote a sequel in 1997 called Farm Boy, which was also successfully dramatised.

Much like the first Harry Potter book, this edition was not issued with a dust-jacket and many copies seem to have gone into the public or school library system, so a rare find in such condition.
