LoveReading View on Blue Moon

Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8  This thrilling pony story has everything fans of the genre want: a wild, beautiful setting (the Rocky mountains) offering great gallops; a beautiful noble horse; a special bond linking horse to owner, that will be put to the test. When Anna’s mum falls ill, her dad tells her they’ll have to sell some of the horses to pay for treatment. Terrified he’ll sell her own horse, Blue Moon, Anna smuggles him out and hides him in the mountains. It nearly ends in disaster when a frightened Blue Moon runs away. Full of drama, excitement and heartfelt emotion, this is a perfect story for girls who love horses. Beautiful illustrations by Gary Blythe make it even more special.

Also published by Barrington Stoke, and therefore specially adapted to be particularly accessible to dyslexic readers, Bright Star is another gorgeous horse story by Jenny Oldfield. ~ Andrea Reece
