The story is told form the little boy's point of view. It flows very well; with only one or two spots I would have phrased something differently. The author also tends to use short sentences; "Then I saw something on the bank. Something in the trees! It was Little Black. He saw me in the water."
The illustrations in this book are wonderful. Everything -the horses and people- is very expressive. You can see the sadness in Little Black when the boy doesn't ride him. You can see the boy's fear when he is in the river. You can see Little Black's pride in saving him. All these emotions are portrayed beautifully. The pictures are not very detailed, but they are shaded wonderfully. The illustrator must have been very knowledgeable about horses as well, as these horses look alive. It is a great book with a sweet plot, great pictures and flowing words.
The illustrations in this book are illustrated by James Schucker & this is Beginner Books A division of Random House & the cover has a picture of a boy feeding Little Black an apple & the kid feeding Little Black has a red sweater & a white shirt on.
When the kid trys Big Red his friends stopped to look at him & he goes by Little Black but didn't look at him.
When he jumps Big Red, they go by Little Black & his head was down & he was very sad.
The part where his leg got stuck in the tree, the kid pulls his leg out.
When the kid rides Big Red on the ice, he goes to get Little Black who was running away & tried the ice but, the ice couldn't hold Big Red & Crack! Splash! down the kid went into the cold water. So then, the kid holds onto Little Black's tail & the ice held the two of them & Little Black saved him.
So one night all of his friend come to see Little Black.
They were all happy as him.
"Little Black," he says, "there is no horse like you. You are the best of all! And I will ride you only from now on."
