In the early years of our country, a poor school teacher, Justin Morgan, receives a horse and her tiny colt in payment for some work. He wishes he had been given money instead. Hoping that he might sell both horses for a fair price, he asks his student, Joel, to break in the colt. To his surprise, young Joel soon discovers that this small, brown creature has special abilities: Bub can pull more than a team of oxen, and he can run faster than a racehorse. But while the sturdy little runt wins contest after contest, all Joel wants is to save enough money to buy the beloved Bub.

    " Reading this book was like opening a door onto the past and descovering the history of a breed from the eyes of the very first foundling Sire, back at the beginning of all things. This story came to me from America, travelling a great distance like the adventure that this one little colt went on all those years ago. The most famous of the American breeds; the Morgan, is brought vividly to life in this charming childrens tale that is a national treasure of a horse/ pony story. The book may be designed with the younger audience in mind, but it is something that can certainly be apreciated by the older reader due to its subject matter and any equestrian enthusiast who is a fan of this particular distinctive breed of horse will love this tale. What i found most captivating about this book was the beautiful eye-catching front cover that depicts the young colt in pastel, which is a trait that extends to other works by Marguerite Henry (such as 'King of the wind' and 'Misty of the Chincoteague'). Its the stunning illustrations within the book that add that unique and classic touch, which really does help to bring this delightful story to life. This is a must read for any pony-mad child, but also one of those books that will be apreciated by any equestrian who enjoys finding out the history of the horse. It is a small volume that deserves to be displayed and which will take pride of place upon the bookshelf. "

    " A fun reread! Was impressed with the history, again, and its another book that covered the life of the horse, but neatly done. I'd forgotten how much the horse went through. Enjoyable read! "
