TheHorseStudio.com review:-

Well this is the one that started it all. The first in the Morgan series, all pre-teen horse crazy kids will delight in this tale. It is written in an engaging style and the text is accompanied by some lovely artwork throughout from noted artist Jeanne Mellin. As a horse crazy kid myself ( what a surprise), this is just the type of book that I would have saved my weekly pocket money to buy. The story is well structured and leads the reader gently along through the ups and downs, as the character overcomes obstacles to achieve her dream. I can totally see why this author has won so many awards. A very gifted writer who knows not just children well, but horses too, and the passion that makes us all so in love with everything horse. Highly recommended.

Please see her other titles also listed here at The Horse Studio. com. Bet your child will want to read book two just as soon as book one is finished.

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.
