Ages 8-12 will welcome a zany story of a girl who loves horses, and who finds out the hard way that they are a lot of trouble, when her mother brings home Really--a.k.a. Really Mean, the nastiest pony in Maine. Two horses later Sophie is still very challenged by horses--and by friends who like her only because she owns one. A hilarious horse story evolves: quite a different approach from your usual--girl-loves-horse tale.
