The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a classic tale of the American plains and one boy's belief in a horse. He watches, entranced by Flicka - the speed of her, the power, the wildness. But can Ken tame Flicka, the proud and spirited foal, and prove those around him wrong?
The Good Book Guide Review. Dreamy unsuccessful Ken longs for a colt of his own - but his father, a Wyoming rancher, is adamant. So Ken befriends a mare. Flicka. links his life to hers and when he believes she has been shot, his interest in living ebbs. The first of three classic animal stories that pull at the heartstrings.
My Friend Flicka by Mary O'Hara
Ken loves riding on the ranch in Wyoming. All he wants is a colt of his very own. Horses are the family's livelihood and Dad can't afford to waste a valuable animal on a dreamer like Ken. That is, until he's given one that no one thinks is any good.
‘Sixty years have elapsed since I first read it and it remains fresh, relevant and wholly absorbing. This is a book for any boy or girl longing for a horse of their own’ - Sonia Benster, Huddersfield Children’s Bookshop
