The Horses of Central Park

Scholastic, New York, 1992, 119 pp
Scholastic, 1994



Twelve-year-old Wendell talks to the horses in Central Park, and learns about their lives. Shocked
at what he learns, he and his friend Judith help the horses who pull the carriages in Central Park
to have a glorious session of freedom in the park, before they return to their ordinary lives.


Michael Slade is a playwright, and a writer for television. He has written musicals, and also wrote the book accompanying Pokemon Live!, which my son would have thanked him for had he known about it. He was Pokemon obsessed. Michael Slade has won awards for his children’s literature, with his horse book, The Horses of Central Park, winning the 1993 ISAR award.


Finding the book: easy to find. It was not published in the UK.
