  • The book is truly heart-warming

    Twelve-year-old Bonny dreamt of being an Olympic cyclist like her hero Laura Trott. Cycling was a passion in her family with both her mum and dad loving the sport, though her dad couldn’t ride anymore. She was so fast that her mum decided it was time for her to start training on her own as she was holding her daughter back. So taking off on her new bike she rode far and fast into the Dales until she saw a field with three horses in it. Taking her eyes off the road she tumbled from her bike. There was something about those horses she couldn’t get out of her mind. Every day she rode her bike past them, taking them carrots. Her passion had always been the bike until the lady who owned the horses offered her a job looking after them. The lady, Lizzie, was an artist, a sculptor. She had made some beautiful animal statues. Having her eyes opened to the world of sculpting, Bonny’s dreams of being an athlete were put to one side. There is always something magical about Micheal Morpurgo’s books. You might start out thinking that you are getting a beautiful story but underneath there are always elements of something more occurring within the pages. This is a book that makes you realise that you can have more than one passion. That sometimes life sends you in a different direction than what you thought it would and that you have to believe in yourself. The book is a quick read at just 64 pages and some of those are filled with full-page illustrations that are just amazing, I especially love the artwork at the edges of them that show you the animals in the picture roughly hand drawn and in different positions. The book is truly heart-warming, especially the end. It is a straightforward book about a little girl and her dreams and friendship with Lizzie and is quite simply beautiful.

    Thanks for your feedback!
