Everything but the Horse

Everythign but

By Holly Hobbie

Oh, I just loved this book, for a number of reasons! It’s by Holly Hobbie…remember her? I had a calendar by her when I was young :). Well, the illustrations are really nice: fresh, perky, real, done in watercolour. Her depiction of city life at the beginning is so charming, and her depiction of country life is downright real and wonderful. I love the girlish passion the main character has for horses, and I loved the surprise ending! Now I have probably ruined it for you—if not for your kids–because it really isn’t an amazingly incredible story, but short, sweet, and wonderful. Enjoy.
