A horse is a horse, of course, of course

As the once popular theme song goes:

"A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
And no one can talk to a horse, of course,
Unless, of course, the horse, of course,
Is the famous Mr. Ed!"

Well, move over Mr. Ed, because there's a new breed in town, and they're tough as nails and a lot cuter too.


This book will have you thinking twice
'bout horses from the land of Ice
fluffy, stocky, not too tall
and not like Mr. Ed at all
But when there is a life at stake
They know the path they have to take
The road is lonely, dark and deep
But they have promises to keep
no stopping them until it's through
'cos that's what magic horses do


This is a fantasy/adventure story for girls from the ages of weenybopper to teenybopper. The short attention span summary is that five young women (Laura, Emily, Andrea, Darcy, Kim) and five Icelandic horses (Prinsessa, Ariel, Kedja, Hela, Skessa) set off on a riding trip, with the objective of learning how to get along despite their differences. What they get is an adventure into the past, and with the assistance of their horses, they get involved in a quest to rescue a princess and save a kingdom.

Although there are a couple of long stretches for the imagination, and the dialogue could use a little tweaking in places, this one has all the right ingredients for the targeted age group, such as BFFs, horses, family, feuding, magic, romance, respect, rescues, swordplay, heroism, and above all, friendship. This novel is recommended for any young teen or pre-teen on your list.
As Mr. Ed said: "Go right to the source and ask the horse"
