Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Horse lovers who are not quite ready to tackle Jessie Haas's chapter books about Radish and Beware (HarperCollins) or Ann-Sophie Jeppson's information-rich "Pontus" stories (R & S Bks.) will appreciate this leveled reader. Paddywack conveys his frustration with Jane, who at first does not grasp the concept that the horse needs to be rewarded with treats. Jane is not the quickest learner, but when she forgets to close Paddy's stall one day, she witnesses his jump over the garden fence. This inspires the little girl to strive to do well in competition, and once she remembers the importance of rewarding her horse, he is similarly invested in her success. This makes for a winning combination. Clear and colorful illustrations, some of which are full-page scenes, convey emotion and evoke the equestrian lifestyle attractive to many children, especially girls. Short sentences, a limited amount of text, and a large font size will all enhance reading success. Besides appealing to the horsey set, this story sends the gentle, inspiring message that partners who look after one another's needs have the best shot at success.—Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT

My daughter loved this book! It is a very sweet story told from a pony's point of view. My daughter learned about trust, forgiveness and how to overcome fear. I highly recommend this book for any child who is able to read at this level. My daughter is 7 and needed no help at all.

If it was a chapter book it would be amazing! I liked the part where she forgets treats but gives her so much treats she couldn't count then she got kisses.
