it was ok

Read in December, 2009

I enjoyed the part where they described the boy’s disability… and the illustrations weren’t half bad either. While the tale is charming it is also dull to a less interested reader as myself. I wanted the horse ‘Sham’ to have his chance as much as the next reader, but I think it would suffice to read the headline in the newspaper. For all you die-hard horse fans, perhaps your opinion will differ.
