A Little Horse called Pancakes

Written by Candice Noakes & Illustrated by Wendy Paterson

“A happy story about a too-small, too- round, scruffy little horse, and a determined little girl. Together they work hard to achieve their dreams. The first in an ongoing series, A Little Horse Called Pancakes introduces young readers to a very special relationship between a girl and her miniature horse. They develop a bond and challenge what others perceive as the norm with the help of all the animals that live on their farm. With beautiful colour and black-and-white illustrations, the book uses the discipline of equestrian vaulting to educate readers about the sport and convey the lesson that commitment and dedication pay o in the end. It is aimed at children aged 4-8 and can be used as an early reader.
