My Students' Favorite series

KING OF THE WIND: THE STORY OF THE GODOLPHIN ARABIAN by Marguerite Henry, illustrated by Wesley Dennis – winner of the Newbery Medal in 1949 and deserving of it.

BLACK BEAUTY by Anna Sewell – the edition illustrated by Charles Keeping is lovely.

FLY BY NIGHT and THE TEAM by K.M. Peyton – books about an English girl and her pony that are as close to what it’s really like owning and showing horses as any I’ve read.

JINGO: WILD HORSE OF ABACO by Jocelyn Arundel, illustrated by Wesley Dennis – one of the first books I ever read. It’s out of print now, but stands the test of time.
