Wonder Horse: The True Story of the World’s Smartest Horse

Wonder Horse: The True Story of the World’s Smartest Horse written and illustrated by Emily Arnold McCully is the story of Doc Key and his horse Jim. From slavery to fame and fortune, Doc Key spoke out against prejudice and animal cruelty, using the unusual intelligence of his horse, Jim, to help make his point.

Embedded in a history lesson on slavery, Jim Crow South, or animal cruelty, Wonder Horse is a beautifully illustrated book that broaches some of those tough issues in language that children can begin to grasp.
