This book I acquired through BookBub's program - it was free, so of course I wanted to pick up another sweet children's read!
The artwork in this book is absolutely STUNNING! The pony on the cover pulled me in and made me want to read it! The style of this book, with soft colours and blended lines was also fantastic. I like this art style so much, so it's nice to see it included in a children's ...more

But no, seriously, it's cute. I just don't get why the boy has to climb out the window. Are the stairs sick too?
When I’m not doing either of these, you might catch me whispering to dragonflies, chasing rolling pumpkins, traveling the world with a giant wheel of cheese, or simply having a cup of tea and cake with a clever little rat, a lonely pony, a couple of riotous retired neighbors, and some kids who, li ...more
