  The Black Stallion by Walter Farley

Review by: Olivia C.
Florida, Grade 5

There is always something at stake.


The black stallion was a very good book. The two main charecter’s of the book was a boy named Alec and a black stalion.The black was a wild hores an untame beast he, was unbroken . No one could get close to the black . what I like about this book is the way they discribe thing’s, the way they discrided the black . later on in the story more charecter started comes like, alec’s mom and dad. They semed like nice people . later on in the story there was an old man called Henry , Henry to me it seemed like he was a main charecter too . Henry did big thing’s, very big thing he helped alec do something really big. Then later on in the story we met someone called jim and someone called joe. I like this story mostly deacuse it’s about adventure, courage, bravery, and action .

In this story Alec show’s courage by riding the black stalion , a stalion that no one would ever darev to ride . You see the thing about the black is that he only trust Alec and henry . The black will go crazy if he goes some where and his hores friend Nepoleon isn’t there , in fact the black wouldn’t even budge to go some where if Nepoleon doen’t go . wow, the way they wrote this book is so cool . I really like the setting’s that they choosed for this book . The way they planed the story it’s so amazing.

In the story Alec find’s something suprizing about Henry, but if you want to know you’ll have to read the book. Honestly when I found out about Henry’s suprize I just thought, wow, just wow. Moving on, if you read this book you’ll probally find it, suprizing, entertaning, and well exiting.I won’t lie to you this book was amazing, it was an awsome book, and I hope you can read it too and enjoy it as much as I did.


In the end the story had a rellefing ending that was very happy or sad im sorry , but you’ll have to read the book to find out. Anyway, so if you like realistic book’s I think you’ll really enjoy this book. I would highly recomend this book and I really think you’ll like it. Don’t forget to read this amazing book, and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this reveiw.
