Publisher's Summary

When the steamer Drake is shipwrecked off the Spanish coast, only two passengers survive. One is Alec Ramsay, a young American boy. The other is the Black Stallion, the wildest of all wild creatures. Stranded together on a desert island, boy and stallion develop a deep and wonderful understanding. The Black Stallion is the horse Alec has always dreamed of - beautiful, free-spirited, and astonishingly strong. Alec is determined to tame him and bring him home to New York. But the job turns out to be more difficult and dangerous that he ever thought possible, for a wild Arabian stallion will not settle down easily into the quiet American countryside. Generations have been captivated by Walter Farley’s heartwarming story of the extraordinary horse and the boy who loves him. To this day, The Black Stallion remains one of the best-loved books of children around the world and a classic of children’s literature.

    "Precious story! Hugely satisfying!"

    A beautiful, timeless classic! Will read again. Frank Muller's voice is a great match for this book. He is easy to listen to, and enjoyed his style very much. Classic stories, such as The Black Stallion, and headsets, go well together!

    Story
    "Youth classics are classics for a good reason."
    If you could sum up The Black Stallion in three words, what would they be?

    Still a classic


    Any additional comments?

    There are still thrills in this great old book. It has been a movie for a reason. The theme is classic and it is a tightly written book that defies time.

    Story
    "Excellent for children!"
    If you could sum up The Black Stallion in three words, what would they be?

    A classic for all children. We listened this summer and all my children (12, 10, and 7) were attentive and involved in the story. Great narrator. Will look for Frank Muller again. His voice was pleasing and never distracting.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    We listened to a couple chapters each morning on the commute in to summer school.

    I enjoyed Henry, he was truly brought to life by the voices the narrator uses.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I used it with my classroom and we listened to it daily for approximately 2 weeks.

    Story
    "This story has it all-excitement and adventure!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Black Stallion to be better than the print version?

    It really makes the story more enjoyable for young listeners.


    What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His use of his wonderful voice brought each character to life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A wild horse, a young hero, an amazing adventure!
