Reviews - What do customers think about Brown Sunshine of Sawdust Valley?

Brown Sunshine of Sawdust Valley  Jul 2, 2001
I loved this book as much as I loved Black Gold! This is a story of love, courage, and anger. It starts about a little girl named Molly who gets an old mare named Lady Sue for her tenth birthday. Molly in her heart, does not like Lady Sue. She wanted a wonderful hose as elegant as Secretariat. Then, when Lady has a baby mule everything changes. Molly raises Brown Sunshine of Sawdust Valley to win the King Mule Contest. Despite all of the teasing from Freddy Westover, Molly takes a leap of faith to create a champion out of the true King Mule - Brown Sunshine of Sawdust Valley.
Brown Sunshine of Sawdust Valley  Feb 28, 2001
The story is about a girl named Molly who wants a horse of her own, but her family can't afford a horse. So on Molly's tenth birthday her dad saved enough money to give Molly a really big surprise. Molly gets an old mare named Lady Sue. Molly acts like she is happy, but she wasn't that happy at all. She was not very grateful. Lady Sue had a baby mule named Brown Sunshine. Brown Sunshine became a beautiful young mule. Molly turned Brown Sunshine into a hard working mule. She became her friend. Brown Sunshine inspired Molly to write an award-winning essay. He became so beautiful that he won the King of Mule Day. The book was a fiction book and it was very well written. The setting was in the Sawdust Valley. It was a peaceful place until everyone started talking about Brown Sunshine. I liked this book because I am an animal lover and it was about an animal. It is also an enjoyable book to read and you can read it very fast. It is full of surprises. I recommend this book for boys and girls ages ten to fourteen.
Brown sunshine of sawdust valley  Jun 14, 2000
I loved this book it didn't take me long to read it but I loved it their were some dull parts but still i give it 5 stars. Most parts were really exiting. The part I liked the best was when she got a horse.
Excellent Children's Book  Feb 13, 2000
I read M. Henry as a child and grew up with the horses in her stories. I recently read this book again, and I found it to be just as wonderful.
This read-in-one sitting book by the author of MISTY OF CHINCOTEAGUE is presented in both diary format (first person) and standard narrative form (third person). You will be kept on your toes as chapters alternate in style, even switching back and forth in the same chapter. But this lightweight tale introduces readers to the world of mules--their history and unappreciated value. Molly (aged 10-13) acquires a young mule as a suprise, thanks to her father's wise faith in a lean, older mare. Even the local bully grows up to respect both girl and mule. This gently-paced story praises human caring for animals and their loyal service to man. A simple storyline which will appeal to pre teen girls are horse crazy.
