Publisher's Summary

"Nope, that little feller don't look like he'll amount to much." That's what almost everyone said about Little Bub. But young Joel Goss knew that Little Bub was a special colt, even though he was a runt. When schoolteacher Justin Morgan asked Joel to gentle the colt, Joel was thrilled. Little Bub proved that size and breed weren't everything. Soon word spread throughout the entire Northeast that this spirited colt could pull heavier loads than a pair of oxen and run faster than thoroughbreds.

This book, which garnered a Newbery Honor, presents the true story of a simple horse that, through pure spirit, rose to greatness. His descendants, who helped settlers tame the American wilderness, would become a world-famous breed of American horses, the Morgan.

    Story
    "A precious dalliance into a childhood favorite"

    Horses were my passion for as long as I can remember, and I owned all of MH's books as a youngster. Only now do I own a Morgan horse and to revisit this book spoke to my heart in away I couldn't have imagined. The story was vivid and the characters even more so. I could hear the sounds, the whinnies, the voices, and smell the scenery as it was described. This novel has touched my life again and I'm so grateful. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever loved a horse, particularly those horses who have beat the odds against them and changed people's opinions. I own just such a Morgan and I'm so proud that I do. Enjoy.

    "Wonderful. "

    The kids enjoyed it, although they were not a fan of the narrator. He seemed a little monotone.

    Story
    "Justin Morgan Had A Horse"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Too much fiction.


    What could Marguerite Henry have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Research a bit more, though enough info to tell the truth might not actually be out there, there is too much Disney finishes to story lines.


    Which character – as performed by Patrick Lawlor – was your favorite?

    The horse.


    Was Justin Morgan Had a Horse worth the listening time?

    It was okay. It's pretty childlike.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't take so much creative license.
