This gorgeous picture book tells the story of a black foal named Midnight and his owner, Guy, who headed off together to the cavalry in World War I…. a suitable addition for historical units.
—School Library Journal
The text is well matched by Lessac’s bright and colorful gouache paintings…the pair’s loyal friendship, as well as Midnight’s ultimate sacrifice, will likely resonate with animal-lovers.
Useful as a facet of a larger look at World War I.

Lessac’s…illustrations in saturated colors set the scene and clearly express the bond between Guy and Midnight.
