This book is a magical tale about true friendship, facing and overcoming obstacles, and most importantly, always believing. It starts with a young horse in Belgium and a little girl living in America who are brought together by a bit of fate and a shooting star.
"Big Wishes for Little Feat" is about a horse named Lafitte De Muze, an illustrated version of the well-known real-life show hunter, who has been ridden to success by professional Amanda Steege. The author pulled from Lafitte's inspiring qualities that have made him a star in the show ring, an equine ambassador with the EQUUS Foundation and a favorite in the barn to create a heartwarming account that includes the likeness of her horse beside fictional Ella in the starring roles. The characters come to life thanks to the beautiful artwork by Paolo d'Altan.
This is a great gift for any young horse lover that you can also enjoy for a bedside reading! It's captivating and inspiring with colorful, beautiful pictures that perfectly complement the story.
