Book Review

By Mandy Foot

A delightful tale about young Lucy who has outgrown her beloved pony Smudge and yet, is not quite ready to let go of Smudge for the needy but more-her-size Copper. The letting go and the pull of her memories lead her to a deeper understanding and the story is a little thoughtful tale about life – simple and reflective. It is certainly one that will enrich your shared reading times with your young family members. Considerate of animals, their welfare and part they have to play in our homes and farms. “Not that long ago, Lucy’s legs stuck straight out from Smudge when they rode ... Now her toes almost touched the ground ...” Take some time these school holidays to enjoy a quiet family reading time. RRP $19.99
