    Wonderful!

    As a young girl and as an adult, I really enjoy this book. Although it is not entirely historically accurate, its moving story and the interesting perspective offered by the horse throughout make it an intriguing and interesting tale. Children are introduced to one of history's most exciting stories in an amusing way that helps keep them reading.

    Immense, action-packed history...with a twist

    I liked this book because it has history and was exciting. I also liked it because it was from a horses' point of view and discussed freedom. It is Paul Reveres horse, Sherry telling about his master's famous ride and how Sherry becomes a true patriot and helps lead the Sons of Liberty to victory over the British. You should read this book with excitement and anticipation!

    50/50 Book

    The reason why I only rated this book a 3 is because I didn't enjoy this book alot. It's okay but I don't think that very young kids would like it because it has very big words and they'll put it down after the first chapter. But that's my opinion, and other people have different ones!
