  • Re: The Pawneeobedience, caring for one's ancestors, acting honorably and stunning artI always enjoy the attention to detail in Goble's illustrations.After reading one of these stories with the kids, we go back and decide which piece of artwork we like the best.


  • The inside of this cover is amazing! Dark blue to lighter, to green and yellow images of running horses.The ancient domain of the Pawnee people was within the present states of Nebraska and northern Kansas. These are places which they greatly venerated--certain hills, rocky cliffs, springs of water, lakes, and caves. Traditional told these secret places were the doorways to the underground lodges of the Nahurak, the spirit birds and animals and all other living things waiting to be born. From se [...]


  • It was cool recently finding out that he is the artist in his own books. It makes me appreciate the book even more knowing he writes the stories as well as illustrates. The guy on the cover was really cool-looking with his hair and dress. The inside cover with all the white outline of the horses all over the pages, with the blue and yellow and green background was really eye-catching.It was a breath of fresh air to read the tribe this was about, because I’ve never known with his books. I wante [...]


  • Mystic Horse tells the story of a poor young man who's kindness and love brings about a wonderful friendship with a horse. After getting a little too proud the young man's horse is hurt and he must deal with his guilt. As usual Paul Goble writes another story meant to teach a good lesson. I thought Mystic horse touched upon pride and keeping your word nicely.


  • In this Pawnee story, a young man and his aging grandmother are barely able to survive because they lack a horse, and are always wanting for food. One day, the boy discovers an old, sickly horse in the woods. Despite the jeers of the rest of the men in camp, he is determined to care for the old horse in the hope that he will finally be able to hunt the buffalo and provide meat for his grandmother's pot. What I enjoyed most about this story was the shift in cultures. Goble usually writes from the [...]


  • The story of the Mystic Horse is an interesting tale of a boy who finds an old limping horse, cares for it, and in return the horse helps him achieve greatness later in life. I like this story because the boy recieves a second chance even though he disobeyed the horse and does not deserve the second chance. I think this is a great lesson for children to show that we all can make mistakes and poor choices, but sometimes all we need is a second chance to become great.


  • This is a story of a poor young boy and his grandmother who find a "mystic" horse. The story teaches lessons of following directions and forgiveness. The story can be connected to fourth grade social studies standards since it consists of Pawnee Indians. I used this book for a compare contrast lesson with the story, "Knots on a Counting Rope."


  • I love this middle grades picture book about the rise of a native american boy as he becomes a warrior. I will pair it with "A Boy Named Slow" in my fouth grade classroom both for reading and Social Studies.


  • A beautifully written story about one of the most diverse tribes in American history and their passion for the horse culture.


  • Beautiful illustrations for a great story about a shy but brave Native American boy and a mysterious horse he loves.


  • Published in 2003 by HarperCollinsInterest Level: 6th-8th GradeThis is a great picture book about a tale about a mystical horse that helps win a battle, but originally is over-looked. I love that the main human character suffers loss, realizes the value of the horse, and sees a great moment where he is redeemed. The illustrations are truly in a unique style and depicts Native American culture in great detail. The connection with nature and the respect for the culture, obvious through the story a [...]


  • It was very good book because I do like horses.I also like this book because the pictures were fantastic, they were creative.I do recommend this book because it teaches a lesson. Lesson is if a person has worn out stuff they may get good stuff later because you believe in yourself
