“Highly recommended!” (starred review)—Library Talk

Popular North Country yarn-spinner Willem Lange interprets the true tale of a young logger who is saved by his remarkable Morgan horse after an accident in the woods. Luminous watercolors beautifully convey the mutual bond of love and trust between man and animal, while the warmhearted narrative calls out to armchair readers young and old. Concluding activity page. Ages 6-10.
