What Kind of Book is Arno and His Horse

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.75 / 7.0

This was a touching story, with beautiful remembrances of a grandfather who has passed on. The cadence is mostly delightful, but there are some near rhymes that trip you up unfortunately.

The Goodfather
Favorite pastime? Reading with my kids. Just finished Nana Cracks the Case!
4.25 / 7.0

The illustrations are beautiful but the story, while touching and with a compelling idea, is too disjointed. Varying cadence and too many unnecessary near rhymes also detract from a more rewarding reading experience.
