Description

A trainer’s support makes all the difference in this extraordinary tale of a horse who became a legend from Newbery Award–winning author Marguerite Henry, now available in a collectible hardcover gift edition.

In 1791, a Vermont schoolmaster by the name of Justin Morgan comes home with a two-year-old colt named Little Bub. Taken as payment for an outstanding debt, the little colt doesn’t seem like he’s worth much, but the teacher asks one of his students, Joel Goss, to train the horse. Joel knows that the horse has great potential, and soon word about Little Bub spreads throughout the entire Northeast for his ability to work harder, run faster, and perform better than any horse in the area!

This inspiring tale of a little workhorse who became one of the greatest breeding stallions of all time from Newbery Award–winning author Marguerite Henry features the original text and illustrations in a gorgeous collectible hardcover edition.
