From the Back Cover
Felix’s Delivery, writes Sara Stanley, finishing up the fancy painted sign that marks the opening of her cousin Felix’s new after-school business. If Felix can make enough money to support Blackie, his father has promised to keep the beloved family stallion. But Felix’s shrewd business methods provide an income that well exceeds the cost of keeping Blackie in feed, and his appetite for wealth gets out of control. Determined to flaunt his success, Felix takes on a bet that results in a heart-breaking and important lesson.
