Children’s Book Committee – June Pick
The Island Horse
by Susan Hughes
Kids Can Press, 2012
Because of her father’s work, Ellie relocates to a lonely, windy Canadian island where wild horses roam. Who will be her new friends?
From a Young Reviewer:
“This book is special because it’s about wild horses….I enjoyed the characters. My favorite was Ellie…because she was so determined to save the wild horses. [It has a] good format; good everything. I did not like the roundup because they were going to take the horses away and sell them.”
