Julia Eccleshare's comment:
The search for a perfect new horse is a hard one. Mia is so desperate to find a horse of her own that she is likely to fall in love with almost any horse she sees! Tilly wants to help her friend but knows that you have to be business like when making such an important choice. A story of the search is a good one and it is greatly enriched by the interesting extra information about keeping ponies that is interspersed with it.
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.
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."
