Pippa's family went to the sea shore, and after they unpacked the car, the family went down to the beach to have a picnic. Pippa was too excited to eat, so her mother let her go in the water up to her knees, and that is when the adventure begins. When you read this story you will learn all about Pippa's adventures and what she saw in the sea.
This is a fun story for children, particularly those children who love Princesses and Ponies. A really fun part of this book is a silver horseshoe necklace with eight stones on the horseshoe. This will be a nice surprise for the child who is lucky enough to receive the necklace. The author, Chole Ryder, has written a book that will delight all children. It was not until I got to the end of this book that I realized this was only the first part of the story. There are other stories in this series to read before you come to the end. That should be explained right away. There will be some disappointed children, otherwise. My granddaughter wondered where the daddy is in this family. There should be some explanation. The illustrations are done in black and white, which depict Pippa and her adventures. I look forward to book II.

My niece has been reading Princess Pony books so when we had a chance to read one my 5 year old was so excited! I didn't know much at all about these stories but it turns out that this is the first in a series of six books about the magical horse land of Chevalia. Chevalia is peopled by horses, there are no people there. As you would expect from the title they have a horse royal family too. But things are not all well in Chevalia as the eight magical horse shoes that keep the place in existence have vanished, they need to be found by Midsummer's Day or the island will disappear. Pippa is brought to Chevalia by two impressive sea horses as she could be the one to find the magical horse shoes and save Chevalia.
Pippa arrives at Chevalia where she is greeted with a mixture of welcome and suspicion by the horses who have never seen a human before. Pippa makes friends with Princess Stardust and realises she has to help locate the missing hose shoes. The two become friends,( I liked the scene where they both recognise that to the other they are usually a pet) and set out to search for the golden shoes.
The book is well written, it has humour, mystery, princesses and, in this first story, a focus on friendship. We enjoyed all these themes and they are all things that appeal to young girls. If you have a horse lover then I am sure she would love them, but even for a non-horse person there is much to revel in. I was slightly apprehensive about whether I would like reading this to my daughter, but it turned out to be better than expected.Read more ›
