Justin Morgan Had a Horse

Our rating: ****

Little Bub is a colt given to Justin Morgan in payment for a debt. But he’s just a runt. When Justin Morgan tries to sell the colt, everyone says that Little Bub is too small. Only young Joel Goss feels that this colt can beat the best horses of the time. And he’s determined to prove it!

I like the way Marguerite Henry makes her characters. They are in-depth and very real. I also think that Henry describes the time period well. This is a must-read.
