Told from the point of view of Elska, this was a cute story that is sure to appeal to young girls who love horses, particularly those who also enjoy historical fiction. The book teaches some interesting facts about life for both horses and humans in Iceland in this time period. The illustrations were very well done and were adorable. I would definitely recommend this book to the target audience.
i usually don't like to read but this book made me want to read forever
I LOVE IT MORE THEN ANY OTHER BOOK I HAVE EVER READ.
everything about it is intrusting and fun!!!!
The story is a sweet one and you get a feel for the Icelandic pony The end of the book details some facts about Iceland which includes the fact that the Icelandic pony is one of the purest lines in the equine world. No other breed of horse is allowed in Iceland and any Icelandic pony that is exported out of the country is not allowed back in.
Part of the draw of this book for me was how the author captured the spirit of the horse. I spent a month in Iceland on a nature tour and some of my fondest memories are of the Icelandic horses cavorting and playing in the fields. This is such a funny little horse--stocky, but agile; serious, but playful. I thought the author showed the horse's personality and breed characteristics well.
If you ever have a chance to go to Iceland make sure you schedule some time to view the horses.
