...For the 4-6 age ranges, this is a lovely little book...with full colour illustrations reminiscent of The Snowman. ...

The story of a boy who likes looking out of the window, and one day sees a pony in a field that looks lonely. So he goes to make friends with it.

It is short and there’s not much to it, but it is a lovely story for young children, particularly for a bed-time story. The pages are landscape, with full colour illustrations throughout and the text as part of those illustrations. The illustrations are worthy of comment – done in a pastel style reminiscent of “The Snowman” and fit the story beautifully.

While this book has no spelling, typos or other issues, it does have one problem with format because of it’s unique layout. Sadly this means that the book could not be read by Kindle for PC (I had to use Cloud Reader, which is a pity). I’m not sure whether I should be deducting a point for this, but be aware of the issue if you buy it.

For the 4-6 age ranges, this is a lovely little book.

  • Books for Kids: Puss In Boots
    A perfectly adequate version of a classic story with two slightly different endings
  • A Horse called September
    Ideal for children (especially girls or those who love horses) this would appeal to anyone living in a rural setting, or those who wish they were.
  • The Spooky Halloween Night
    this book is designed to be read slowly to a pre-reading child who will enjoy the pictures.
