Review by LyzzyBee
Katy’s living on Exmoor on her Mum and Dad’s farm, but her Granfer still runs the herd of Exmoor ponies, as her Dad was never that interested in the horse side of things. There’s a lot to get used to as Katy grows up, not least of which is coping with school: she’s not that popular, and when a new girl, Alice, starts, and accidentally befriends here, there’s some serious working out to do before they can be true friends. So when Katy spots a tiny new foal on the moor, on her birthday, she knows that all she wants to do is be close to the filly. Classic pony book themes like children bidding at auctions, hidden ponies and that useful stable owner down the road are updated into a world where it’s no good having a mobile phone if you can’t get a signal (but you still want on), you have crushes, your sister lives with someone without being married, and Facebook makes quite a few appearances. It could be an uneasy mix, but it works. Will Katy befriend and tame the foal she’s named Trifle? Will she manage to learn to ride? Read this charming book and find out. Lovely illustrations by Victoria’s husband, Chris, too.
