    Story

    May contain slight spoilers

    I probably should have researched this book a bit better before diving in. While I really enjoyed the story itself, and found it quite interesting I was not prepared for the amount of death and killing of ponies involved.

    This is a novel based on a real event, a particularly disastrous one; it is the story of an adventure to the south pole, two teams racing to have the glory of being the first man there. One man took dogs the other dogs and ponies. This was written from the point of view of a pony named James Pigg, first from his birth and all the way to his death and the many things that happened to him, primarily in the Arctic wasteland of the most southerly contenent .

    If you are sensitive about real accounts of animals and people dying or being shot to death, you may wish to consider researching the non-fiction story and then deciding whether this would be a good book for you. While I learened a lot from this book and found the story to be fun, it does not have a happy ending.

    Story

    John Keating as always, did a fabulous job of narration.

    As an avid horse lover I am always looking for another great horse book. This book is written from the point of view of a horse during WWI and tells of the harsh realities faced by both people and the horses. It doesn't go into so much detail that it wouldn't be safe for children however.

    Story

    I got this book on a whim because I had a $10 credit and I've heard some of her other works are fantastic. I was a bit underwhelmed by this book. Nothing really happened in the book at all. Cats were born with wings, cats flew away, cats started a new life, the end.

    It wasn't bad, but it just didn't bring anything to the table.

  • "Very Beatrix Potter"

    13 of 14 helpful votes

    Cute little story and very typical! I forgot how short some of her stories are! It is age appropriate for young children, as all the B.P. stories are. Narrator also evokes a B.P. style very well.

    What the prior reviewer may not have realized is that in England, then and now, the term "Pussie/ Pussy" is what cats are called, along with "Puss" and not at all a derogatory term. This term also used in Mother Goose nursery rhymes. If a possible problem, perhaps an explanation of this as the proper use of the term as used would be in order. However, it would seem more appropriate not to make anything of it at all...
