5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!
By ML LaRosa 
Format: Paperback
The Artful Dodger is a wonderful story about a horse who chooses just the right human and the amazing things they learn about and from each other. The photography is beautiful and illustrates the story perfectly. The author uses humor and heart while she teaches some valuable life lessons. I so enjoyed this book and cannot wait to share it with my students.


5.0 out of 5 stars The book is full of meaning and love, from a horse's perspective
By Amazon Customer
Format: Paperback
The Artful Dodger is a book about a horse that got rescued and how his life was before and after. The book is full of meaning and love, from a horse's perspective. I would recommend this book to people who love animal and horses. This book teaches you how horses have strong emotions and will care for you and will trust you. It also teaches you about how horses feel what you are feeling, think what you are thinking and how horses need caring and love for any horse to be happy. (Amelia, age 10)

About the Author

Dodger came into Michelle Twohig's life not only to be her creative muse, but to teach her to listen and think creatively when presented with a relationship challenge. As "green" as the horse she rescued, Michelle relied on "natural horsemanship" training methods that depend on a horse's natural, prey animal flight response and skillful use of equipment intended to give the human leverage and control. But as it happened, along with Dodger's social and curious side, he came with an anxiety set in motion by any human with a straight-line agenda (not unlike many growing humans).

As soon as Dodger realized his opinions didn't matter, he offered up as much resistance as he could before falling into a minimal compliance mode that looked like he ran out of gas. A sense of futility snuffs out the lights in anyone's eyes, and for Dodger, it was no different. This set Michelle on a journey to find a way for Dodger to learn that gave him a voice in the process and enticed him to stay engaged. That journey resulted in not only a wonderful connection with Dodger, but an ability to rely on more creative listening and thinking in all of her relationships.

In this book is the voice Michelle listens to every day to learn what's in it for him.
