Ponies for a King

By Helen B. Walters
Level 5

The Morgan and Kern families have been enemies for generations. The families hate each other so much that they live on small man-made islands—completely separate from their neighbors. Both families are raising beautiful ponies, hoping the king will buy them. These ponies are so important that young Lynn Morgan must live on the land away from his family for the entire summer to care for the ponies. Lynn protects them from violent thunderstorms and even a hungry pack of wolves, all while living next to his enemy, a young Kern boy. When an accident threatens the boys and their ponies, they must decide how important their family feud really is.
