Book Review #633
Smoky The Cowhorse by Will James
Rating: two stars (out of four)

I had a hard time getting through this book and I only read the first 32 pages.  I wasn't as interested in the meanderings of the little colt and how he perceived the world.  Another thing was the spelling and grammar.  There is a striking difference between the way this book was written when it was first published and the way books are written now.  I found myself a little waylaid by some of the words in this book.  I just couldn't get into this book and I'm not sure I would recommend unless you loved books about horses or wanted to read all the Newbery Medals.
