The Red Pony
By John Steinbeck
The Red Pony is a classic novel by John Steinbeck who is the author of many other books. The main character is a little boy, Jody. He lives on a ranch with horses, cattle, chickens, pigs, and dogs. The novel consists of four mini stories. They all have the same characters in them but the second one which has a secret person in it.
Review of the book
I liked the book I can relate to the story very well because I live on a ranch like Jody does. My father is strict but not as strict as Jody's father. The layout of the book is very easy to read. The book is a fast and easy read if you need to do a classic novel for a book review I recommend this classic novel.
Jody- Is the main character who is a little boy that wants to have a pony.
