This is a very fine collection of Ms. Henry's books. One of my very favorite books as a child was "King of the Wind" and it was because I was looking it up that I found this collection. For anyone, young or old, who wants to enter into the wonderful, and magical world created by a well-crafted story, these three books will take the reader, and transport her/him into the lives of Agba, Joel Goss, and Paul and Maureen Beebe, and the horses that meant the world to them. There just is nothing like the relationship between a horse and the person who loves (and is loved in return) that horse! And there is no feeling on earth like the one you get on top of a horse, riding off down the trail. These books give the reader a look into the changes the love of a horse can bring about in a person's life, and I heartily recommend the books, especially if you haven't got a horse!

I was SO disappointed to get this set today, just before Christmas with no chance to get anything else for my granddaughter. I loved these books so much as a kid, but the gorgeous John Wesley Dennis illustrations are so important to the story - especially for a 4 1/2 year old being read to. Nothing in Amazon's description warns about this - or the small format of the books either - 5" x 7 1/2". And who did that cover illustration? Doesn't look like John Wesley Dennis to me... what a shame. I wish I had known. I would have chosen something else. These will be returned.

I loved these books when I was younger and my niece is sooooo into horses. She is in love with the books now as well. I was the "cool" aunt because we talked about what she read. It is a great feeling.

Our Daughter is a horse nut, and she absolutely LOVED these books. I cannot say enough about them. Now they are small, so she went through them in one day, but she has reread them as well, and has them up on her display shelf.

When I was in elementary school in rural NH (2 classrooms in the building as I started & 4 as I departed at 6th grade), my Great-Aunt was the local librarian. For 1 hour a week, she read to each grade. This book still rings in my memory very high from my 4th grade experience. I know it must have taken her a few weeks to read it to us, but the reading time I do not remember. What I strongly remember is that after she finished reading to us, the whole class jumped up & wanted to sign the book out. This did not happen often. Boys & girls; all of us wanted to sign the book out. A bit ashamed, I have to admit that she saw in me the book reader/scholar that I was to become (I went on to college a few times-few people in my town did that), and I became the first 4th grader to get to sign the book out. I have loved horses ever since & the Morgan breed is special and "local" to me now. A great historical read.

I loved Marguerite Henry's books as a child! I'm hoping my niece, who loves horses, will like them as much as I did!
