He’s suddenly sent away to a farm in the middle of nowhere, which is filled with the most unusual animals. And where, against all odds, he discovers the true meaning of home and family.

Praise for Little Prince

Praise for Annie Wedekind's Wild Blue:

Praise for Annie Wedekind’s A Horse of Her Own:

Possibly the most honest horse book since National Velvet, from an equestrian point-of-view, this offering’s riding scenes combine accuracy with seat-of-the-pants excitement. A champion.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
