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.

Stevens brings adult sensibility to child's tale
Unique, moving point-of-view
It would require a heart of stone to answer other than Joey, the braver-than-brave horse was my favorite.
I have read the book but did not have nearly the repertoire of amazing voices in my head that were at the complete command of Dan Stevens to entertain and entrance me. His voice and characterizations added so much depth to the experience.
