Endless list of favourite characters 

- Topthorn, Warhorse by Michael Morpurgo

Of all supporting characters I routed for the most, it was Topthorn. If you’re going to fall in love with him in the same way I did, read the book. The book was far more emotive and touching and raw than the movie, as beautiful as the cinematography was. Topthorn had me breaking my heart all the way to the last page and even long after Joey goes home, my thoughts remained with Topthorn. While everyone else put Joey in the spotlight, I glanced to the steady, brave black horse just in his shadow.
