Annie The Mysterious Morgan Horse Ellen F Feld. Moonbeam Winner
TheHorseStudio.com review:- As the fifth book in the Morgan Horse Series this one does not disappoint either. Children will love this story of a lost horse and a young girl's attempt to protect the horse from being returned to a cruel trainer. The illustrations from renowned world class artist Jeanne Mellin are fantastic. As usual Ellen Feld delivers a great story line that is littered with nuggets of horsemanship lessons that are derived from her own knowledge of the horse and passion for equines in general..........(click on image for full details)

The illustrations from renowned world class artist Jeanne Mellin are fantastic.As usual Ellen Feld delivers a great story line that is littered with nuggets of horsemanship lessons that are derived from her own knowledge of the horse and passion for equines in general. The young rider, Heather, works hard to keep a secret without telling a lie, but feels forced to be dishonest to save the horse. A nice moral here about guilt caused by dishonesty and the nature of a relationship that is based on trust. The story is bright with the required ups and downs and obstacles to be overcome. Ellen Feld's books are engrossing. The way the characters both human and horses are continued through all these books makes you feel like you are truly part of Heather's world. It is also a great stand alone read. Though frankly, once you've read one I can guarantee you'll be itching to read more. Highly recommend. One of the best kids books I've read in a while.
Winner of two national book awards! Annie is a Moonbeam Children's Award Bronze Medal winner, plus a Reader Views Literary Award winner!
The fifth book in the popular Morgan Horse series introduces a new horse, Annie. Uncertain of her origin, Chauncy decides to bring Annie home to Gallant Morgans, but he makes it clear she can only stay if he can locate her registration papers. When Heather discovers Annie's true identity, she is afraid to tell Chauncy, knowing the horse may be returned to a cruel trainer. Will Chauncy send Annie back to her original owner? What will happen to Annie if she is returned? Heather hides the truth from her friend and soon events spiral out of control. In addition to the mystery, this book also includes the exciting Justin Morgan class, the famous class that re-enacts the amazing athletic feats of Justin Morgan, and the Morgan Trotting Races, held on the same dirt road that Justin Morgan raced over 200 years ago. Both events are treasured by Morgan Horse enthusiasts around the country.

We are often asked about the content of the children's books we carry. Do they contain any themes/topics that a parent may find objectionable for a young child? Does anybody die (horse or human)? Do they have sad endings? We are happy to report that the Morgan Horse Series books are 100% child safe. While there is conflict within each story (friendships are tested, a horse becomes ill, etc.), nobody dies and each book has a happy ending. Additionally, while the main character in the Morgan Horse series is a girl, and one of her best friends is a boy, their relationship is platonic. They're too busy having fun with their horses.
