About the Author:

Patrick Jennings’s first book, Faith and the Electric Dogs, became a Booklist Editors’ Choice and Texas Bluebonnet Master List selection. He is the author of several middle grade novels such as Putnam and Pennyroyal, The Beastly Arms,,/i> and The Wolving Time. He has taught English and preschool in the U.S. and in Mexico and was a librarian in the oldest public library in Arizona. He now writes in a small seaport town on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, where he lives with his family.

From Booklist:

Jennings captures the flavor of the Great Depression in this mystical tale about 15-year-old Edith, who, with Mother Smith's four other foster children, works as a slave in a logging camp, cooking and cleaning for more than 100 loggers. One day a seagull deposits a seedpod in Edith's hairbrush. She plants the pod, and it grows into five fine horses that she and her foster siblings (Sonny, Jed, Perdie, and Hero, who is pretty and very nice) use to escape into the woods. Venturing through the forest, the children meet Hodag, an old, strangely menacing woman, who teaches them how to survive. But soon they feel the need to escape again, only to find that their steeds have begun to go to seed. It's Edith's resourcefulness that sees the children through to places they can call home. The changing relationships between and among the children are particularly well done. Diana Herald
