About this product
- DescriptionHigh hopes finally pay off for a horse-loving girl (Kirkus Reviews) in this charming chapter book from New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Elise Primavera. Ten-year-old Libby Thump loves two things: her dog, Margaret, and horses. She dreams about them, draws them all the time, and more than anything she wants to take lessons and learn to ride. Everyone tells Libby to live up to her potential, but her mother decides to give the lessons to her older sister, Brittany, instead, and Libby can't believe it. Libby's mom says Brittany needs the lessons more, to cure her boy crazy phase. Then Libby stumbles upon High Hope Farm and meets a horse named Princess who has been put out to pasture. Now Libby can live up to her potential, and so will everyone around her, too. With text and illustrations from Elise Primavera, author of Auntie Claus and Louise the Big Cheese acclaim, this first in a series will appeal to anyone interested in horses--or who kws the value of having a good friend. The well-written story teaches the gentle lesson that life can be unfair, but persistence and passion ultimately pay off (School Library Journal).
