    At the outbreak of World War I, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. He's soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to the trenches to find him and bring him home.

    Georgia Burns says: "Stevens brings adult sensibility to child's tale"
    "Dan Stevens is a fantastic narrator."

    Story

    My 14-year old son and I listened to this audiobook on a road trip. We both loved it. We know a bit of World War I history, and that was what hooked us into the story. Neither of us are horse lovers per se, and I was wondering what I'd think of hearing a story told from a horse's point of view. But it really works! Joey the horse does duty as a farm horse, a cavalry horse, and a cart horse during the course of the whole book. Dan Stevens makes it all come alive with his various voices and accents. He keeps the dialogue lively and fun. He brings real warmth and depth to the human and horse characters. I learned a few more things about life during World War I too. I recommend it!
