In “The Night Horses”, Anaka Jones creates a playful children’s book that imagines the secret lives of barn horses who chatter, chow, play and work all while their owners are away.
The Night Horses is a short, comedic story about a day in a horse lives. All the horses at the stable are presented to the reader, and then the fun begins. The story doesn’t have any sort of plot, but it is a well-rounded story, and it is humorous that the horses are given human characteristics. For example one of the horses is a comedian during the night, and two other horses does each other’s hair and make up.
I did find the story cut and funny, but I don’t feel like it is one I will read again. It should have been a bit more of a story in the book. Maybe if the book was twice as long (it only has fourteen pages) it would have some sort of story o it and feel more like a book.
