Description

Everyone knows that Beatrice of the north woods is clever. But did you know that she's also mighty brave? In this disarming companion to the award-winning Clever Beatrice, our heroine proves that she's a pint-sized force to be reckoned with when she discovers that someone has been sneaking into the barn at night to ride her beloved pony. But who?

The village bread maker, who specializes in solving "things not easily explained," claims he can help Beatrice, given enough time. But Beatrice doesn't have time, so starts thinking herself...
