Alison Lester, “Bonnie & Sam: The Circus Pony” (also known as Horse Crazy 2) (Crows Nest, NSW: Allen & Unwin, 2007)

Another engrossing story of two down-to-earth girls ... who are quite extraordinary!

“'Remember when Wally Webster's performing sheep pooed all over the stage?'” (p5)

“The girls had ridden all the horses and ponies of Currawong Creek at some time. Now they made a list, to work out which one would be the best fro trick riding.” (p16)

This is another good series about girls and horses. It’s a higher reading level than Bramble and Maggie and has a lot more words and a lot fewer pictures, but is still good for second and third graders. I happened to read the second book in the series since that’s what was available at the library, but it stood on its own just fine. The book itself was a fun story with a good message at the end. There’s also a great friendship between Bonnie and Sam.

It was an intriguing book too because it is se

Horse Crazy!
Horse Crazy is a lovely book about two girls that love horses. It was first published in 2009, written by Alison Lester with pictures by Roland Harvey.
There are really beautiful pictures and I think they look very Australian. I also like how Bonnie and Sam care for any horse.
It was a really beautiful book so I’m hoping crazily that Alison Lester brings out another one, or maybe two.
In conclusion, I rate this book 5/5 stars and for ages 9-12. I hope one day you will read it too.
