Synopsis

Stealing Thunder by Mary Casanova

Libby wants a horse more than anything in the world. Since she is unable to have one of her own, she's been doing stable chores for her neighbors, the Porters, for the past three years in exchange for riding lessons from Jolene Porter. Libby forms a special bond with the Porters' prize Appaloosa, Thunder, but this arrangement comes crashing to an end when Jolene abruptly disappears. With Jolene gone, Mr. Porter refuses to let Libby visit Thunder any longer. Making matters worse, she soon discovers that he's taking out his anger on his animals. With the help of Griff, a new boy in town, Libby devises a daring plan to steal Thunder. But how long can they stay on the run and keep Thunder safe, when Mr. Porter holds all the power?

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

Pippa, Jack, Liam & Matthew Wils

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.
