Editorial Reviews

Review

Robin is a great book for both girls and boys. In a nutshell, it's about a young rider who has a terrible riding accident and the friends and special horse who help her overcome her fears. We love the way it accurately portrays the responsibilities involved in caring for a horse, as well as the lessons we all learn in life with making not so right choices, and learning from our mistakes. Our Family Testers found the book to be a wonderful display of excellent educational values...should be in all libraries and homes. --Jodie Lynn, CEO of Parent to Parent

The emotionally perceptive plot is creatively built around the fascinating details of horses, which gives the story an additional layer of interest. The characters are shown grooming, riding and showing horses, all of which actively engages the minds of readers. This information is presented in a practical, down-to-earth manner, as it both instructs and inspires. It was wonderfully refreshing to see the young people in the book showing tender care to these magnificent animals. The author is to be commended for writing a story that captivates readers with an exciting adventure while appealing to both their emotions and intellect. --Curled Up With A Good Kid's Book

This mid-grade young ladies' horse novel uses a mixture of horse and human personality types to tell the story of Karen, a girl who is badly injured by an uncontrollable horse that runs away and throws her off in the path of a car. The rest of the story chronicles how through the help of parents, true friends, and a lovable horse she eventually regains her confidence and love of riding. The author uses just the right amount of horse terms and horse events without becoming too technical. As the characters go about their interactions with their horses, the reader's own equine education is reinforced by the characters' actions and their horses' responses. She uses plenty of conflict on many levels and a string of obstacles and the characters' solutions to craft a very interesting story with a quick pace. We rated this book five hearts. --Bob Spear, Heartland Reviews

Format: Paperback
Ellen Feld zooms me back to my childhood and memories of riding with my friends. Yep, we did some crazy things with our horses...and so many times it was a result of peer pressure. Our horses, like the Morgan horse Robin, seemed to know better and were there to help teach us so many valuable lessons. Ellen's story takes hold of this reality and addresses it with a mature hand and detail that floods the senses with the smell of horses and leather, the sounds of hoofbeats and laughter, the sight of green grass and wonderful Morgan horseflesh, the feel of the reins and a freshly-curried coat, and the sheer bliss of spending time with horses and friends. I have to wait (somewhat impatiently) while my son finishes each new book that Ellen writes!

Once again Ellen is right on the mark when it comes to a believable story with the delicious overtones of whimsy and fantasy that horses conjure up in all of us. All of Ellen's books are worthy additions to any library of children's classics, and are a recommended read for all ages and genders. We await more additions to the trusty list!

As an adult Morgan horse owner I found myself transported back to the days of my youth when every climb on a horse was an adventure. Ellen Feld has captured that youthful pleasure in knowing and having a horse friend. A great book for youngsters but just as enjoyable for us older horse crazy girls.

Like many pre-teens, I was horse-crazy as an adolescent. I loved horses, wanted a horse, and read every horse book I could find: Marguerite Henry, Black Beauty, and the Black Stallion books. I wish that Ellen Feld's Morgan Horse series had been available back then; I would have loved them. And judging by the fact that the series has twice won the prestigious Children's Choices award, lots of children do love them.

The newest book in the series is Robin: The Lovable Morgan Horse. In Robin, novice rider Karen Greene is goaded by other kids into riding a spirited horse that she can't handle. A terrible riding accident occurs, and after months of recovery Karen still has nightmares about it. She is afraid to ride again, but with the help of her gentle Morgan horse Robin, and the encouragement of Heather and other characters from the earlier books, Karen gradually overcomes her fears and faces challenges that test her courage and determination.

Ellen Feld's love of horses comes through on every page, drawing the reader into the world of horse ownership. The horses are real horses, with real personalities - each one different - and horse-loving tweens will fall for them in a big way. The story has just enough excitement to keep it interesting, without being overly frightening or suspenseful. The Morgan Horse Series would be a great addition to a school library.

Well-written and uncharacteristically down-to-earth, "Robin" is another in a fine series of books by Ellen Feld. The story tells a wonderful coming of age story for girls, that begins with a challenging experience and leads to a successful outcome. This is a great book for all ages, with a positive message.

Format: Paperback
Horse-centered adventures involving a skunk, a sleigh, a show, and a scary storm will delight the readers of this book, the fourth in Ellen Feld's "Morgan Horse" series.

It opens with a nightmare-inducing accident: When Karen rides the energetic but anxious Comet she doesn't have the experience to handle him, and a long hospital stay is the result. Will she ever again dare to ride Robin, her sweet and slightly lazy Morgan Horse? As the story unfolds, it tells of new friendships, new challenges, and the slow return of confidence.

Aiding Karen's recovery are some memorable characters. There's Chauncy, a wise and caring horse lover; Heather, a patient and supportive friend; and Champ, a seriously cute Dachshund puppy. You're quickly drawn into the story and find yourself willing Karen to overcome her fears and to rediscover the joy of riding.

Ellen Feld has been writing about horses for some fifteen years, and riding since she was a child. Throughout the book her knowledge and love of horses, especially Morgan Horses, is evident, and her careful research has ensured that the veterinary and other details are accurate. Six beautiful drawings enhance the lively text; my favourite shows Chauncy driving the spunky miniature horse Rerun at the Fall Finale Horse Show, while Karen and her friends look on admiringly.

This engaging story will be greatly enjoyed both by experienced riders (especially girls) and by those who dream of one day heading out on the trails or into the show ring with a horse of their own.
