did not like it
bookshelves: kidstuff
Read in June, 2011

Back when I wanted to be a horse-whisperer, I read pretty much every kid's book I could find with a horse on the cover. This and Misty of Chincoteague are the only ones I can remember hating. The characters are flat, the plot plods, and the stereotypes date it. Even "the Black" (just give him a name already!) annoys me. I don't really understand how it's become the face of "horse fiction" - there's much more engaging stuff out there.
