War Horse

We’ve got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you’ll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

Even if this is your first day at the rodeo, you won't have any trouble with War Horse. Our horse narrator, Joey, uses basic vocabulary and a pretty simple sentence structure. Reading this book is more like riding a Merry-Go-Round than a bucking bronco. But that's not to say you won't be confronted with challenging themes, sadness, and the horrors of war. Seriously, you better pack your tissues.
