Retold by Liz Flanagan
Illustrated by Valeria Docampo
After an old man dies, only his son Ivan keeps vigil. Ivan's reward is the magical stallion Starlight Grey, which he hides from his greedy brothers. When the king challenges the young men of his kingdom to win his daughter’s hand, will Starlight Grey help Ivan succeed? Ride along on this thrilling retelling of a Russian folktale. With ghostly visits, a magical horseback journey, and a tournament to win the princess’ heart, adventure lovers will be on the edge of their seats. Full-color illustrations keep beginning readers immersed in the action and empower them to grasp more advanced vocabulary and sentence structure.
