Description

A boy and his filly get the chance to prove their greatness in this classic horse tale from Newbery Award–winning author Marguerite Henry, now available in a collectible hardcover gift edition.

Gibson can hear the beat of the horses’ hooves against the track. Trotters are the world to him.

But all he ever does is practice. He’s still too young and inexperienced to drive in a real race. Only he knows he’s ready for the big leagues. If people would give him a chance, then they would know it too.

Gib’s chance comes with a filly named Rosalind. Now he can prove that he’s good enough to train a champion. But does he really have what it takes? Can Gib and Rosalind go all the way to win the Hambletonian, the greatest race of all?

This classic horse story from Newbery Award–winning author Marguerite Henry features the original text and illustrations in a gorgeous collectible hardcover edition.
