Justin Morgan is a proud, beautiful stallion living in the hills of Vermont. He works hard to help farm the land and when he has time to play, he loves to run through his field, bucking and rearing as he goes. One day, two racehorses appear and challenge him to a race. What Justin doesn't know, however, is that the two racehorses plan to trick him into racing twice - once against each horse. Will Justin accept the challenge, and if he does, is there any way he can win two races?
Loosely based on the true story of Justin Morgan, the first Morgan horse, Justin Morgan and the Big Horse Race introduces readers to the famous stallion and shows just what is possible when you believe in yourself and have friends who believe in you too. As an added bonus, at the back of the book is a "Did You Know?" fact page with information on the real horse, the famous race, as well as his first owner, Justin Morgan, a teacher and musician.
Written by IRA award-winning author Ellen Feld and lavishly illustrated by famed equine illustrator Jeanne Mellin, this book is sure to capture the imagination.
