    1. Wow, this is a terrific book. Another from the Children's Book Week selection I have been working through and I must admit that I left this one till last. I would love to say that I thought I was leaving the best till last, but in truth, I was thinking oh no, another war book - and even worse . another Aussie history war book.BUT. as I say . this is a terrific book. Told in three perspectives - Narrator, Jim (the young 17 - 23 year old Aussie farm boy heading off on an adventure with his best ma [...]


    2. James and I have read some beautiful picture books about the Light Horses of WWI so we wanted a book that went a bit deeper. This was an excellent read, but I am glad we read it aloud, together.


    3. For what it is, Light Horse Boy is a book well-written. No, it's beautifully written (except for one howler at the end of the book: "Although old, and scarred, none of us have met a horse with a kinder temperament". It's the horse that's old and scarred, not the writer of the letter). It's just that I just can't imagine why any child would want to read it. It's a book written with an adult purpose i.e. make sure the kids know plenty about the Anzacs. But it's too convoluted if you have to find s [...]


    4. This is a companion book to the award winning Lighthouse Girl. It tells the story of two horse-mad Aussie mates, Jim and Charlie who sign up for service in the Light Horse in WWI. It is a beautifully produced book, with mock cloth binding over it’s sturdy hardcovers. There is so much information in this book and so many threads, but the team of Wolfer and Simmonds do a great job with it.Jim is a farrier, who has a real feeling for animals, especially horses. This leads him to spend much of his [...]


    5. I love my Kindle, but books like this are why we need to keep hard copy as well. A book like this would just not work in an electronic format. This is beautiful. It's well written, well researched and just all round charming. It follows the story of Jim and his horse Breaker as they fight in the Great War - World War I. It starts with Jim joining up as a 17 year old (lying about his age) and follows him through to the end. The story is told through traditional third person narration and letters [...]


    6. Light Horse Boy is a powerful book based on the historical events of 1914 - 1918. The characters in the book are fictitious but due to the author’s meticulous research of records and diaries, they are vividly brought to life. This is enhanced through the mixed media of the text which includes letters, diary entries and prose. The visual photographs and beautiful charcoal illustrations by Brian Simmonds also bring the story to life.The story follows Jim and Charlie who, seeking excitement and a [...]


    7. An impeccable mix of fiction, diary, letters, photo, illustration that brings to life all the different facets of war the friendships, the horrors, the contradictions and questions, the bravery and the adventure. With Anzac Day almost upon us, this is one book that should be on everyone's to be read list.


    8. Needed to give this five stars. The book takes you on such a journey of preparing for war and then through several WWI battles. The old photos give you even more of a sense of the horror. Horses are such incredible animals.


    9. A beautifully presented book and a perfect partner in reading time to Thomas Keneally's Daughters from mars. Thank you Dianne it was a pleasure to meet you and keep wiring. And so on to Lighthouse Girl.


    10. This was a great historical read. I loved the illustrations and the use of archival photographs. Suitable for 10 year olds and up.




    11. Young men sign up for World War I -- and fight in the Middle East not only for the British empire, but to save their beloved horses. (AUS)


    12. An absolutely beautiful book, capturing the spirit and heartbreak of war. So very pleased I purchased this for our school library, I will be thoroughly recommending it!


    13. This book is just amazing. It is a very detailed history of the Australian Anzacs From the troopships to alexander to Anzac cove this book is definitely worth five stars.
