Top Customer Reviews
Although a story involving horses that need to be rescued from cruel owners or from slaughter could be sad, Sanderson focuses on the happier side of life on the rescue farm. With its touches of humor and realistic "horse" emotions, this book is sure to be a favorite with horse lovers of all ages.
Other pluses for this book include the gorgeous cover painting by illustrator Ruth Sanderson and the fact that 50% of the royalties will be donated to help rescue horses.
1. There are many errors. Someone didn't preview the book too well. Here are the ones I caught--but I am sure there are more: (p109) "All three the staff members" should be "All three OF the staff members." (p110) "He he was..." should be "He was..." (p125) "...put painlessly sleep" should be "put painlessly TO sleep." (p135) "the my owned died" should probably be "then my owner died..."
2. Slow moving at times, especially at the end when over ten years are quickly passed over, to get to point when Opal re-appears.
3. Personally, it was disconcerting with the several points-of-view of the horses; their conversation will appear in italics. That may not bother others.
4. I'm not sure if typical horse ranches would allow children--especially handicapped--to ride on a horse like Treasure who has shown some wildness, but...since this book is based on a "real" horse, maybe it does happen.
Otherwise, the idea of the book is great and it teaches a lot. It is a totally decent book--no bad words or ideas. Kids would probably enjoy it.
