“Beyond cute, without sliding into saccharine. . .The illustrations, with washes of color and starry skies, are done on a flat plane that brings the action close. The rhymes and action words throughout provide extra pep for this already-spirited tale.” —Booklist
In this season of strong, brave women, Maureen's absolute favorite memoir - Rough Magic by Lara Prior-Palmer - is not to be missed. It's about Lara's naiveté in trying to win the grueling, soul-wrenching World's Loneliest Horse Race in Mongolia, with nary a thought of preparation. This is for fans of Cherly Strayand's Wild and MacDonald's H is for Hawk and is writing at it's finest! - Review by Maureen
