This was an awesome story. My daughter always reads out loud to me. I thought it was a bit boring at first, but when we got to the end, she and I knew we needed the remaining books in the set! I can't wait to hear 'the rest of the story'.
This is the first of an eight volume series written at the level of young readers who are ready for chapter books. However, it will also captivate older and more capable readers. Very rarely do authors writing for this particular reading level give the attention to character development and story-telling that Ms. Duey does in this series. This beautiful and fascinating saga builds to a surprising conclusion that will amaze readers of all ages. I highly recommend it for young readers to enjoy on their own or for families to read together aloud
The book was so good I can't stop lookiing at it I can't what to get the NEXT BOOK! Siver Thread.
This girl finds a horse but end up not being one... a unicorn!!! This unicorn's horn got riped off I think because there's this big scar in her forehead. Advimir (the unicorn) has a baby... Moonsilver. Then the rest is a surprise for you!!
