The Escape Horses of the Dawn #1Get ready for a wild run in bestselling author Kathryn Lasky's brand new middle grade animal fantasy seriesThe horses are in danger They were rounded up by the two legs and forced onto a boat to cross the wide ocean Personal Response I really enjoyed this book It was an adventure book and showed a lot of the history when the America’s were discovered A lot of it was fantasy because horses can not really talk but it also shows how animals suffered because of the humans landing in the New WorldPlot In the book the main character Estrella is a baby horse that was born on a ship Her mother was a Spanish horse that was coming from Spain to explore the America’s There was no wind at sea for a while so the ship was just stranded in one place They were running out of food for the crew and the horses The Captain finally decided to throw the horses overboard in order for the ship to move Estrella’s mother and her were some of the horses to be thrown overboard They all made it to land safely except for one That one was Estrella’s mother She was the leader of the herd Now it is up to Estrella to lead the herd to safety and find freedom away from the humansCharacterizationWhen Estrella was born she had no idea how the real world was She was born in a dark ship and was kept in a sling for most of the time She was always curious about the real world and her mother always told her about the stars which she was named after The day they threw the horses overboard Estrella was confused and scared on what was happening She has never seen water When Estrella and the heard made it to land she was tired but she knew she had to be the leader of the herd even though she had never seen or experienced the real world After they were free she had all of the skills it takes to be a leader in the herdRecommendation I recommend this book for kids in middle school and up I feel it may be a little to hard of a book for older elementary kids
