Enduring and timeless theme of the loyal friendship that can exist between animals and humans.
Classic, page-turning adventure - with a real appeal for boys.From the Back Cover:
The Black Stallion is a character well-known to children through nineteen novels and two film productions. Walter Farley has now rewritten the very first story in simple language for beginning readers. This easy-to-read adaptation of a classic tale is the perfect book for beginners who want real adventure.
'I can read it all by myself' is the Beginner Books motto, and behind it is an understanding of how important it is for children to take pride and pleasure in their early reading.
Beginner Books have been designed to appeal directly to children through the use of humour, rhyme, and bright pictures that can be 'read' even by the non-reading child.
Some Beginner Books are simple stories, others are hilarious nonsense: both types have been designed to give children confidence and make them want to go on reading.
