Last weekend I went to the Big Smoke to see WarHorse - and it was splendiferous! Brilliant story with really captivating puppetry, if you can call them puppets, the horses as you can see below were life size, and huge!
I think puppetry is one of those skills that you have to work hard to not make it twee, but done right its truly amazing. Which this was!
Its a simple story about a boy and his beloved horse, Joey. Who both end up in the war but are separated. I wont give too much of the story away as the book is very short and a good read, I recommend you read it! and the film is coming out soon as well, so there are a plethora of ways to experience the story.
So, No 19 done, dusted and thoroughly enjoyed! :) x
