9780763626570: Horse Tales

For any child with a passion for horses, this collection of fourteen tales, gloriously illustrated by Inga Moore, is the perfect equine companion.


Saddle up, take the reins, and prepare for an exhilarating ride through this field of horse tales! Here you'll find difficult horses and dream ponies, ponies in danger, and horses that ride to the rescue. June Crebbin's collection of fourteen stories draws on a wide range of places, times, and cultures: there are tales from Ancient Greece, fourteenth-century Mongolia, and France in the Middle Ages; traditional tales from Russia and Native America; and stories from the present day, too. The horses and ponies themselves are equally diverse — of all colors and characters — each magnificently rendered by award-winning artist Inga Moore.

About the Author:

June Crebbin is the author of a number of stories for children, including THE TRAIN RIDE and COWS IN THE KITCHEN. She lives in England, where, as a lifelong horse lover, she rides as often as possible.

Inga Moore has illustrated numerous children's books, including THE BOOK OF BEASTS by E. Nesbit and THE RELUCTANT DRAGON and THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS by Kenneth Grahame. Inga Moore lives in England.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4-7. Crebbin, an English writer, offers a collection of stories about horses, including selections from novels as well as a few tales from mythology and folklore. The quality of the writing is quite good, though the 14 pieces vary widely in tone and level of sophistication. British and American writers represented include Crebbin, Peter Dickinson, Marguerite Henry, Alison Lester, Michael Morpurgo, K. M. Peyton, and Anna Sewell. Moore contributes an ink drawing at the heading of each selection and many large, beautiful illustrations in watercolor, pencil, and ink. Crebbin provides a brief introduction to each selection, but no source notes, which would have been useful for the folklore. For example, the story from Caron Lee Cohen's The Mud Pony: A Traditional Skidi Pawnee Tale, here called simply "The Mud Pony," is described in the one-line introduction as a "traditional Native American tale." With fine paper, spacious design, and distinctive artwork, this handsome collection will find its audience. Recommended for larger collections and those in "horse country." Carolyn Phelan
