 The Plot

Little Horse faces lightning, fire and dangerous animals on his way back to the valley of little horses and his mother.

cover Betsy Says

In the first book, LITTLE HORSE,  I took Little Horse away from the valley of little horses.  And, believe me, he did not want to go!

Then I couldn’t stand it.  I had to let him try to get home.  He does go through a lot – at one point he ends up with a mouse riding on his back.  I went through a lot too.  Is he EVER going to get there?  Read the book and see – and if you don’t want to read the book, at least look at the wonderful pictures of little horse on his way.
