War Horse Tough-o-Meter

By Michael Morpurgo

Tough-o-Meter

(2) Sea Level

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.
