Barney the Horse and Other Tales From the Farm

Morpurgo, Michael/ Usher, Sam

Full of friendship and adventure, this charming story collection from Michael Morpurgo and illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees is perfect to read together, and celebrates the way the countryside and its animals can leave an impression on a child’s heart forever.

Join in the daring rescue of a lost lamb, meet a boy who loves butterflies whose friends find a clever way to include him from afar, and discover how Barney the horse forever changes the life of the child who looks after him.

These tales are inspired by Michael’s experiences with Farms for City Children, the charity he co-founded, which offers urban children from all over the country the chance to live and work together on a real farm and experience the magic of the countryside.
