Quincy and Buck
By Camille Matthews
Illustrated by Michelle Black
Quincy and Buck is a wonderful picture book for kids about bravery, courage, trying new things, and bullies. We all have to protect ourselves against bullies in the world. And this is a very important topic for kids of all ages.
The story is about Quincy and his beat friend Beau. Both of them are American Quarterhorses living in a small barn. But they only know their immediate surroundings, and both crave to get out and explore the world a bit. With Beau’s help, Quincy is inspired to face the dangers of the trail. But in the process, Quincy finds that his best friend Beau is a bully and makes Quincy’s first ride miserable. How sad! But Quincy manages to keep his own and to overcome some of his antics with some help.
I absolutely loved this book. The paintings are bright and absolutely breathtaking. The paintings will give the reader an up close and personal look at Quincy and Beau and their exquisite beauty. This was especially the case for the red penny coloured horse. This book will capture the attention of all children. It can make a great bedtime story. It will be especially enjoyed by kids who love horses.
Thank you Camille and Michelle for such a GREAT picture book for kids of all ages.
