Perfect Horse: The Daring U.S. Mission to Rescue the Priceless Stallions Kidnapped by the Nazis

Elizabeth Letts is the Marguerite Henry of today, and for grown-ups.  Much like Henry, she writes books about horses that are so very much more.  I had the book release date marked on my calendar, and it was even more exciting to get it because I was finally travelling to Vienna, and my date with the Lipizzaners, a few months later.  I was not disappointed.

Conceptually, the story is interesting.  I’m purposely not saying anything more, because it wasn’t a terrible book, and you might want to judge for yourself.  I personally always like quests.  And this was a pretty cool catalyst and outcome (if only Perdu would’ve gotten over himself at some point).
