This book is about a girl called Charlie who lives on a farm with her family and Charlie’s friend Joe. One day, when Charlie was at school, she met her friend Polly who told her about a horse show at the weekend. So, as soon as she got home she told her mum. Her mum said she could ONLY go if she didn’t buy anything!

So, the next day, she went with her father to the show. When they went to the bidding ring, there was one horse and one pony. She saw Polly and waved at her but it cost her £1,0000. But how? You’ll have to read the book to find out!


What is so special about the horse?

Why doesn’t he gallop?

Who is naughty Percy?

How does Charlie become famous?

All these questions will be answered in the book.

I give it 10/10. If you like watching the Derby and horse racing, this is the book for you.

I recommend it to 8+ horse lovers.
