Review

Frosty: The Adventures of a Morgan Horse is a delightful book with an eye-catching cover. It combines the unbeatable combination of horses and drama, and teen readers, especially girls, will love it. From the first chapter, it captures the reader's interest and sets up an engaging plot: how is this girl going to buy this horse and what will happen if she does? For any kid who loves animals, this is a must read. I especially liked the way the author puts both horses and Heather in jeopardy, yet gets them out convincingly without creating a boring or pat ending. The tension goes right up into the last few pages, and I think readers will really enjoy the feeling of being around stables and arenas and the beautiful horses. The writing is so descriptive that you really feel like you are right there with Heather, Frosty and Blackjack throughout the entire book. This would be a great book for anyone who loves horses or animals in general. Great idea! --The Writer's Digest

The adventurous sequel to Ellen F. Feld's novel, Blackjack, Frosty: The Adventures of a Morgan Horse is a thoroughly delightful novel for young readers about a girl and her relationship with powerful and noble animals. Heather Richardson, owner of the horse Blackjack, is entrusted with a rare gray Morgan named Frosty. Heather learns to her disappointment that not all horses are meant for the show ring, yet she also discovers that Frosty's strength lies in trail riding as she and Frosty must learn to work together to survive the woods of Vermont. Frosty is a story to be cherished by horse lovers of all ages. --Midwest Book Review

Ellen F. Feld, award-winning author, equine journalist and phenomenally passionate horse lover, once again reaches out to the hearts and dreams of the teenaged horse loving set with her newly revised book, Frosty. Reading Frosty instantly transported me back to my childhood days and returned to me the wonderment and awe I used to feel when I'd hide under the covers with a flashlight, turn page after page of a favorite book and read to my heart's delight. This is one of those rare timeless books that can be enjoyed and read by all age levels. It's very easy to see why this is a Children's Choice award winner because this reviewer thinks it's a winner too! --Deb Fowler, Roundtable Reviews

From the Publisher

Frosty is the second book in the award winning Morgan Horse series. Voted one of their favorite books by 10,000 children (Children's Choices, 2004), all those kids can't be wrong! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This was a really, really good book. I loved the first book in this series. It was called Blackjack. Frosty is the second book and it is really neat. I don't like horse books that talk more about the people and who likes who or who is going to be their new boyfriend. I want to read about horses! These books are all about horses. The people seem real and so do the horses. In Blackjack, the horse hated to canter on one lead, just like the horse that I ride in my lessons. And Frosty does a lot of stuff that my lesson horse Jess does too. You should read this book if you like horses.

This is a really cool horse book. I read the other book in the series last year. It is called Blackjack. This one was even better!!! I didn't know how Blackjack would get cured or how Heather and Frosty would get out of the woods. I read it really fast too cause I didn't want to stop.

I read Blackjack which is the first book in this series and thought it was the best horse book ever. Then I read Frosty and I liked it just as much. This is a really cool series. I love how real the horses are and all the horse show stuff and trail riding stuff is neat.

Format: Paperback
This second book in the series begins with Heather, our leading teen horse-loving protagonist, at a horse auction. While there, she spots an unusual looking but rather shy mare in a corral, near an anxious and excitable show-offy horse. Heather eventually coaxes the mare to come to her, where the two establish a connection.Later, Heather buys the horse, only to discover the horse just might be a rare gray Morgan. Heather calls the horse Frosty, after her gray and frosted coloring, and once she brings her home and cleans her up, she falls in love. Unfortunately, Frosty knows nothing of training for showing, and worse, was likely abused or at the very least mistreated by her previous owner.

It's up to Heather to train and prepare this horse, and she learns a lesson in patience doing so. She also learns that not all horses are made to be prize-winning show horses. Then, on a fateful ride, there is an accident, and Frosty spooks. I won't go any further so as to not spoil it for anyone who hasn't read the book, but Heather fears for her life and this is a big turning point in the book as well as for Frosty and Heather together.

There are multiple lessons to learn in this book for pre-teens and teens reading Frosty. Readers learn the value of patience, acceptance of each person (or horse) for their natural talents instead of trying to push someone or something into pre-assumed labels, and also we learn to accept disappointment and turn it into something better, how to set aside expectations and let trust and talent shine through.

Cons: It's a relatively well-written story, though there are minor grammatical issues that as an adult I'd prefer to see improved, since children learn to write from what they read.

Ellen F. Feld, award-winning author, equine journalist and phenomenally passionate horse lover, once again reaches out to the hearts and dreams of the teenaged horse loving set with her newly revised book, "FROSTY: The Adventures of a Morgan Horse."

Laura and Heather were best friends. Best friends know everything about each other, but for the life of her Laura couldn't figure out why the heck her pal would ever want to bid on such a bedraggled looking horse. Heather already had a great Morgan horse named Blackjack, but another one, a dirty mare with burrs in her tail no less, was just too much. "What? Are you crazy? " Heather heard her friend, but she heard this little mare calling out to her more. There was something very special about this little gray gal and she knew it. She just knew it. The bidding was on and her stomach was in knots. Going once, going twice . . . Frosty was hers

Heather Richardson had high hopes for Frosty. She was anxious for her to be her second show horse, but soon found that her new purchase was clueless when it came to commands. She was gravely disappointed to find out that Frosty had been "ruined" by an unscrupulous and cruel trainer. Coupled with the fact that Blackjack had a mysterious illness her problems and discouragement continued to mount. Her rare gray Morgan was useless But was she? Heather, much to her delight found that Frosty just might have the makings of a great trail horse.

With this new discovery the girls had been anxiously looking forward to going on the Mountain View Trail Ride, a three day ride in the woods of Vermont. When they arrived at their destination they were raring to go. Heather and Frosty were doing fine until a quirk of fate separated them from the rest of the riders.
