The Lovereading4Kids comment
How a gentle pony makes a real different to one of the young people at Silver Shoe Farm is a touching story founded on fact. Rusty comes to the riding stables after his elderly owner dies. He is an exceptionally gentle and calm pony – just what is needed to help Edward, a young boy with special needs, to enjoy his visits to the Farm. A thoughtful addition to an excellent series.

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.
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
