The Case of the Secret Pony (Animal SOS) by Kelly McKain
Leah and Amy may be total opposites, but when it comes to helping animals in danger they make the perfect team! When things start to go missing at White Horse Stables, the girls realize they have another adventure on their hands. It's only when they discover the culprit behind the thefts that the hidden pony is revealed. But just what is the pony's secret? The girls need to find out, before it's too late...Animal S.O.S. to investigate! A fantastic adventure series from Kelly McKain (Pony Camp Diaries, Totally Lucy), Animal S.O.S is the perfect series for horse-mad, animal crazy girls. Full of adventure, tests of friendship and mystery, Animal S.O.S will be loved by Kelly McKain's many fans.
This is the third book in the new series, Animal S.O.S., by Kelly McKain. It reminds me of the adventures of the Secret Seven series by Enid Blyton. It is great for animal lovers but also for children who enjoy adventures and mysteries.
The books all feature Leah and Amy and are based around White Horse Stables, a business owned by Leah's mum, and where both girls help out. In this story, the girls find a horse, who appears to dislike humans, and who no-one appears to be taking care of. Leah and Amy aim to find its owner and when they do, they do all they can to treat the horse for its confusing temperament.
Although this book is part of a series, the books do not have to be read in order, making them perfect for animal lovers who can choose the book featuring their favourite animal - although I am sure that once they have read one, children will want to read the rest of the series.
This is a fantastic book, which will be enjoyed by animal or mystery lovers. It is great for confident readers or to be read together at night.
Thank you to the publishers, Stripes Publishing, for sending me the book to review.
