Fergus was a very interesting horse. He could do summersaults and back flips. Bobby liked Fergus very much. One day Bobby tossed a soccer ball at Fergus and Fergus kicked it back. That started Fergus playing soccer.

Before they knew it Fergus was on TV. Everybody wanted to see Fergus. Awhile later Fergus was on a promotional tour for soccer. Fergus went all over the US so people could see him be a goal keeper. Something goes very wrong on a beach in Florida when someone steals Fergus. The police and Bobby try to find Fergus, but he is very far away. Will they find Fergus? Read the book to find out.

***** I enjoyed this book very much. It has very good plot twists in it. I also enjoyed this book because it is a very interesting story. If you like horses make sure that you read this book. *****

This book is a great read. It is full of action, and teaches lessons on the importance of friendship. Not only did my boys love this book, but my little girl loved it as well! In this day and age, there are few books or stories that touch our hearts like Fergus does.

Simpson Farms raises polo ponies. But one of the colts, named Fergus, has zero interest in polo. Fergus spent the days doing somersaults and back flips. Bobby Simpson is the boy who owns Fergus.

One day Bobby is practicing soccer moves with his friend, Ramon Aguilar, when he notices Fergus's interest. As a lark, the boys send t he soccer ball toward the colt. Sure enough, Fergus sends the ball right back to them. Turns out Fergus is a natural for the position of goalkeeper. Local residents begin coming around to watch Fergus play soccer. Word spreads and soon the media is involved.

It is not long before Ian Conner with the International Soccer Federation has the boys and the colt on a national tour. They play soccer in famous places, such as at the Chicago Diamond, Ohio Stadium, Foxboro Stadium, Tampa Stadium, and even the Giants Stadium. Fergus's name becomes known all over the globe.

In steps Rumble Smith, a rodeo stockman with a mean temper. He and Reiterate Johnson make plans to kidnap Fergus from the tour.

***** This book may target boys, but girls will enjoy this story just as much. I found myself smiling as I read of Fergus's antics. The frolicking colt is just so fun to read about. He is amazing! There are a few illustrations scattered throughout the tale to help boost the imagination. I could clearly see that the Illustrators drew in some tiny details too.

All-in-all, you will find this the perfect read for kids around the ages of 8 to 15. Well written, easy to understand and follow, and highly recommended! *****
