Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
Hattie loves horses and sets out to rescue Speed, a broken-down horse scheduled to be put down. Speed spent his life at pony rides, carnivals, fairs, and in other slave labor. Hattie’s dream for him is to run free on the range. With the help of her friend Delores, they set off on a road trip. She kidnaps him and travels across country where she must come face to face with reality and love. This is a wonderful horse story for middle and high school.
