Saddle up, take the reins, and prepare for an exhilarating ride through this field of horse tales Here you'll find difficult horses and dream ponies, ponies in danger, and horses that ride to the rescue. June Crebbin's collection of fourteen stories draws on a wide range of places, times, and cultures: there are tales from Ancient Greece, fourteenth-century Mongolia, and France in the Middle Ages; traditional tales from Russia and Native America; and stories from the present day, too. The horses and ponies themselves are equally diverse of all colors and characters each magnificently rendered by award-winning artist Inga Moore.
Inga Moore has illustrated numerous children's books, including THE BOOK OF BEASTS by E. Nesbit and THE RELUCTANT DRAGON and THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS by Kenneth Grahame. Inga Moore lives in England.
