    One thought on “The Crumb”

    1. This is one of the rare children s books about animals that is even better seen through the eyes of an adult re reader The details about horse showing are so spot on the footing after a rainstorm, the trainer s bone tiredness, the shady trainers with armies of fancy ponies, the fact that even some mediocre riders get clients because they get lucky with a talented horse The personality of the honest Crumb is perfectly realistic and yet is every child s ideal pony, down to his sturdiness and beaut [...]

    2. I read this as a young girl maybe 10 12 and was mildly traumatized by it I appreciate it a lot as an adult This short book is deceptively dark It starts out sweet, a girl hacking her talented but past his prime pony around the countryside, but then she stumbles onto something disturbing a horse being stealthily placed in an out of the way barn and locked in Later she comes back to find empty syringes where the horse had been.It turns out that this story is really about a horse loving girl and a [...]

    3. This book kills me every time I ve reread it frequently since discovering it in my elementary school library, and it never gets easier to read it s so lovely, so true, and so heart wrenching.

    5. not sure heart rending moments but the end wrapped up too soon and the baddie was known quite early on Also never felt invested in the main character Caroline and have LITERALLY just finished it.

    6. Unexpected bit of heartbreak in otherwise predictable mystery plot, but a good story of the juvenile showjumping world all the same.

    7. LOVED this book His name was Buttercrumb Cake so naturally I called him The Crumb Terrific story about a girl and her pony that ends poorly.
