This book is about a knight who forgets everything. He goes to fight a dragon to save his horse. I thought this book was okay but not amazing. It was easy to read and had great illustrations.

Kids’ Club Review by Rose: The Princess and the Foal

The Princess and the Foal, by Stacy Gregg

I was about 9 or 10 when my friend recommended this to me, and I loved it and bought my own copy. It is a beautiful story told in such wise words by the amazing Stacy Gregg.
It is about a young princess named Haya with a strong love for horses and a huge dream and potential. It is a book I’ll always remember as one of my favourites, and for its wonderful, inspiring and impressive story.
I would recommend this book not just to girls who love horses, but also to those who dream and strive, even if it seems impossible.

Destiny and the wild horsesDestiny and the wild horses, by Stacy Gregg

I read this book called Destiny and the Wild Horses. I enjoyed this particular book because it is really creative in that the twelve horses were all really different and were training in just two weeks. I enjoyed what the author Stacy Gregg did for this book.

Definitely 5 stars!
