The Lovereading4Kids comment
Pony-mad friends Tilly, Cally and Mia courageously tackle greedy horse thieves in this thrilling pony story. Packed full of top tips on riding as Tilly puts her horse Magic Spirit through its paces , this is also a fast-paced adventure as the girls take charge when thieves break into their stables to steal the Derby winner moonshine who is staying there to keep out of harm’s way.
This fantastic series for pony-mad 7+ year olds has been a huge hit since it was first released about 18 months ago. 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. When stunning derby winner, Moonshadow, arrives at Silver Shoe Farm, Tilly jumps at the chance to spend time with him. But Tilly's not the only person who's interested in this beautiful top-class horse, and a sleepover at the stables reveals just how far some people are prepared to go to get close to him...
Here is some recent 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."
