" Charming story of horse hopes with a satisfying twist to the ending. " said.

" Reminded me of myself as a little girl. " said.

" Perfect ending - best part of all " said.

" Holly Hobbie shares her memories of moving to a farm, raising animals, and longing for a horse. She's got the barn, got the pasture...will her parents come through with a big surprise for her birthday? A cute tale! " said.

" Artwork perfect, the only thing I can fault this book is that by simply telling the story as it happened, sort of keeps the reader at arm's length. You don't live the story the way you do other Holly Hobbie books. Loved the unexpected twist at the ending and still think this is a great story! " said.

" From the author of the Toot and Puddle books, this little memoir is really well written and illustrated. It is a nice story about a little girl that wants a horse when her family moves to a farm. Doesn't every child at some point want a horse? A nice picture book. " said.

" This is a wonderful memoir from Hobbie's youth when she yearned for a horse. Not too different a yearning from Susan Jeffers. And, like Jeffers, she spent hours drawing and painting horses. The ink and watercolor illustrations in single and double page spreads are lovely. And, there is a surprising little twist at the end of the story. " said.

" This is a beautiful picture-book about Holly Hobbie as a young girl. The illustrations were charming and the story reflect the hopes of all young girls. It felt familiar. I couldn't decide if it was the style of Holly Hobbie or that it was possible I read it to my daughter when she was young. Either way, I was charmed. " said.
