  The Black Stallion by Walter Farley

Review by: Danielle B.
Florida, Grade 5

It is sourt of funny.

The Black Stallion is a fairly good book. In my opinion the book is perdickful. The main character is a eleven year old boy who got shipwrecked with a wild stallion


The story is a good one. I wish that the author would give me more detail about the charectrs and the back round seting. They are constantly facing new challenges so sometimes it is hard to figure out what is going on.

The theme of the story is that you can do anything if you try hard enough. I think it is a wonderful theme because it applies a lot to life.

In this book I think the other made more oscars than you need to end the story. In my personal opinion this book is a better book for fourth graders. Honestly this book is not the highest level book out there, but if you're looking for a quick interesting story then I would recommend this book.

In the story the Black is a wild devil and must prove that he can race if you want to know if the Black and Alec make it to the big races then I guess you just have to read the book!


The other of the Black Stalin is Walter Faley. He lived in New York as a kid, but was able to perso his love for horses by his uncle, who was a professional horse trainer. He wort the Black Stalin when he was in high school.

So in my opinion this is a good book and I would recommend it.
