Does anyone know this book and can recommend similar?
I've already posted this on a couple of other forums but with little luck so far, so here goes: I'm after book recommendations. I was recently given a novel called "Eleanor McGraw, a pony named Mouse and a boy called Fire" and it's absolutely blown me away. A real horsey book but totally different from everything else I've ever read in the genre. I'm in the middle of reading it for the third time in a row now but before I know it off by heart I was wondering whether anyone here has read it and whether they can recommend something similar perhaps? I've read all the classics like Flicka, Black Stallion, Black Beauty and Follyfoot and thought they were great but what I really liked about Eleanor McGraw is that it's set in the here and now, it's about more than horses and at the same time completely about them and also quite raw and real but also funny and very profound...ahhh it's just the best book ever. (And I'm completely in love with the Pike character.) Anyway: does anyone else know the book, liked it as much as I do and can recommend something to follow it up with? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
