1570For those young ladies who are into horses. This is a lovely book about Charlie Bass the young daughter of a farmer. She is into horses in a big way, however, her parents cannot afford for her to have one. Her older brothers tease her about how she looks, and life at school isn’t easy for her either.

The end of the story is a little unlikely – however, that is not to its detriment, particularly for the age range. It has reflections of Lauren St John’s One Dollar Horse, and is a lovely book. The text is full of riding and racing references and will as I say be loved by all those young riding enthusiasts.

Due to be published as a hardback at just under £10 in September and will be illustrated by Tony Ross
