The House Pony, Letter D

‘A stunningly illustrated book… This will be hugely enjoyed and greatly learnt from’ Lucinda Green, MBE

Together with her scruffy tomboy niece, Tuffyhead, Aunt Jelly welcomes the pony into her crumbly country home to live as a house pony with a large number of other animals, that she has also been tasked with caring for since rescue. The journey of learning, for Tuffyhead and exploration for The House Pony, is echoed throughout the book.

In alphabetical order the author, Juliet Blaxland, uses wonderful animation to visually demonstrate various points that are crucial to a horse’s welfare.

A great, educational bedtime read for parent and child!
