Wonderful and beautiful!
What a fabulous story. And, I love the way you have to read the story to see the interactions. It's like a real book with fun, beautiful visual bonuses!
If the publishers want this to be a continuing series they need to show the girls so the reader can identify with them. Need to see much more of the horse and the boy and less leaves and grass. The river is lovely but there is not enough animation and sound in the story. Young people expect more with ebooks than hard bound books. Disappointing!
A beautiful story of horses and friendship told in a really new and lovely way. Every girl who's seen our copy has loved it. They won't put it down. A great read and fun!
