    This was a lot of fun interesting It s definitely for the younger crowd those who aren t very familiar with horse racing He explains a lot about how handicapping, breeding, races are done, although this is back in the late 1930s so some things have changed Not as much as you might think, though.He really brings Seabiscuit his people to life My heart went out to poor Red Pollard Tough man who tried hard, but had a lot of tough breaks literally The races were well described Often Moody cribbed directly from newspaper accounts transcriptions of the race itself Fantastic.I ll put this right up with Old Bones the Wonder Horse, an old favorite Highly recommended to young old.

    I ve had this book on my shelf for years and had never gotten around to reading it And despite the love I had for horses growing up, I also have not seen the movie they made a few years ago based on Seabiscuit s life All that to say that I honestly didn t really know what happened with this horse and was genuinely on the edge of my seat during his major races Not going to lie, I had tears in my eyes when he finally won the Santa Anita Handicap.It s genuinely almost unbelievable that this is a true story It reads like fiction This book is aimed at younger readers middle school ish , so I can definitely see myself picking up a detailed biography of Seabiscuit in the future, as he was a horse with a seriously exciting life, full of drama and happy endings.

    I loved this book when I was a kid It s a good kid friendly account They can move up to the Hillenbrand one later.

    This book took me by surprise I picked it up because I had to read Hillenbrand s Seabiscuit for my book club, but I love Ralph Moody I thought his book might be fun to read with the kids while I read the other on my own But then this one pulled me in, and even without the kids, I couldn t put it down I learned a lot about parenting, goal setting, perseverance, and hope I ve since started the Hillenbrand s book, and love that I have the collector s edition with lots of photos, and am getting to know the people behind the bourse better.

    I like all his books, but this one is great about the legendary horse Seabiscuit Yes, there s another recent and much thicker book out there about the same story, but I like this one much better because it s short and exciting.

  7. says:

    Great to have read an account by someone who actually lived at the time and witnessed the life and accomplishments of Seabiscuit.

    I listened to this story as an audiobook with my family on a recent road trip and we all LOVED it The personality of this horse comes to life through this story It was so sweet and inspiring.
