Lovely books

I bought these books for my pony-mad 7 year old granddaughter for Christmas. She loved them all. To such an extent that she wouldn't put her light out at night trying to finish each one before going to sleep (well, she didn't lick that habit off the wall!) Granny will be buying the next series for her birthday.

Saddlestone series

I brought them for my friends daughter who loves horses. I hadn't heard yet how she liked them but I love them myself. I read them before I gave them to her. I will order again.
