When a girl receives a tiny horse from her aunt, no bigger than a puppy, she is perplexed. Is this really a magical creature from Greece? As the horse grows, wings sprout from its back—indeed, he is no ordinary animal—and the girl names him Pegasus. But much as the girl loves him, she learns that sometimes you have to let go of those you love so they can be free to go their own way. Here Eve Bunting captures the magic of childhood for readers 4 to 8, while Dennis Nolan brings the tale to life with his realistically detailed yet dreamlike watercolors.
