Summary

You’ll train her, and she’ll train you. I want you to make a good pony out of her. I want her to make a man out of you.

When Ken is given a horse of his own, he thinks his dreams have come true. But Flicka is a proud and spirited foal - and everyone says she’s no good.

Can Ken tame his wild horse and earn her friendship?

Still good!

Still a terrific book after all these years - I first read it as an eight year old and it only gains with age: it's not really a kid's book although it is so often marketed as such. The narration is good, even if Gus' Swedish accent comes second only to the Muppets' Swedish chef :-) What a shame Thunderhead and Green Grass of Wyoming aren't also available as audiobooks as I'd have bought them both like a shot after listening to Flicka!

back to childhood

I read this book, and the sequels as a child. tho it's much more than a children's story really. this was a real
time travel journey, full of feelings, I couldn't have enjoyed it more so 5"stars all round.
