The Black Stallion meets Frankenstein

I made a decent amount of progress at work today on my project of getting all of the children's collection in the computer catalog. My goodness, I never realized quite how many Black Stallion books there are though. The Black Stallion, The Black Stallion Returns, The Black Stallion Revolts, Son of Black Stallion, The Black Stallion and Satan, The Black Stallion's Sulky Colt, The Black Stallion Meets the Three Stooges... it just goes on endlessly and we seem to have all of them. And here I thought there were a lot of Oz books, but apparently L. Frank Baum didn't know beans about churning books out compared to Walter Farley.

I read so very very many of those Black Stallion books as a child. I don't know what percentage of them my school's library had, but they were one of the two most exciting series I could find in the elementary library. Forest fires! Amnesia! Horses fighting each other! Murder attempts out in the desert!

I now regret having missed these when I was a kid with a mild case of horse mania. I read some of Marguerite Henry's horse books, but never any of the Black Stallion series.
