This book is about a horse boy named Agba and a horse named Sham. They live in the sultan’s s stables in Morocco. In this book they have to travel to France with 6 other horse boys and horses as a gift to the king of France Louis XV. When they make it to France there in starved condition Because of how bad shape the horses wore in the King of France sent Agba and Sham to be used by the Chief. The chief could not control Sham so he sold him. Agba fled to Paris when he found out. Will Sham ever get to prove himself? Will he ever be the horse Agba thinks he is? Read the book to find out. I think I the book was ok. It was a bit dull at some points. I felt the setting moved too often. I liked the idea of Agba being pretty much a slave. Overall in think the book was ok.
