Our daughter is nearly five and seriously into the pony/animal books. She chose this one from the library because of the picture of the flying bear on the front cover. We read it within about three days because our daughter couldn't get enough of it and to be honest, partents and grand-parents were looking forward to the next installment too. Really enjoyable, with a tone/style similar to the Philip Pullman books (but not as 'dark'). Would love to know of any similar books.
