The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a very special series for pony-mad 7+ year olds from one of the best known riders competing today. Each book is not just a great story, but also full of expert advice that readers will pick up along the way. So if you have a child who dreams about having a pony, then Tilly’s Pony Tails will provide an acceptable substitute. For others who live and breathe ponies because they have one, this series just might get them hooked on reading too.
Pippa had the idea for an ongoing story about Tilly’s family from the beginning. Though Tilly owes her appearance in part to a friend of Pippa’s, the riding champion admits she has more than a passing resemblance to her lead character. Though readers will learn a lot about horse care from the stories, at the back of each book are “Pippa’s Top Tips”, which offer advice on everything from avoiding kicks to cleaning tack.
Here is some praise from pony-mad youngsters:
'When I read Black Beauty I thought that was good, but this is even better' - Emily Cooper
'I recommend Magic Spirit to people who are pony mad. I loved it and I think other people will too' - Megan MacDuff
'I love horses so I like reading about them as well. This book is the best book in the whole world' - Pandora Ross
A message from Pippa Funnell, champion rider, Olympic Medallist and Grand Slam winner:
When I wrote my autobiography I never imagined that I would find myself writing children’s books just 3 years later. Much of my thinking about Tilly has been done out loud in front of family, friends and godchildren – thank you all for listening. But, more than anything I have to acknowledge my four-legged friends – my horses. It is thanks to them, that I was able to create a girl, Tilly, who like me follows her passions.
