DS would like to read War Horse next (he has a brand new copy in his room and for the life of me I have no idea where it came from ). We would read it between us at bedtimes so I can help him with tricky words + themes.
How scary / sad is it? I like the idea of reading it as it will tie in with the WW1 anniversary, but not if it's too much for him. We've read Harry Potter 1 + 2 together and he reads Beast Quest, Mr Gum etc on his own.
