It wasn't visible or just blank I would say there in the ARC soft copy.
Otherwise the lines are few out of which from what I could take was that Norman, the horse, is well loved by a little girl called Ellie.
However, he keeps worrying when he doesn't see her. Well, I could say it ends well with a chaotic house. I wish I could see it.
Thanks NetGalley for the ARC.

The story itself was really simple; there was no hidden lesson and the imaginative elements were easy to process. It wa ...more
