A girl and her horse, Wandering Star are best friends. They roam wild and free in the world of dreams, and wherever they go there is magic.

A girl’s love for her horse makes this is an enchanting tale of friendship and discovery as the pair take part in adventures. Fears are faced in a dark cave and twinkling glow worm lights come to the rescue. In the whole world the most magical place of all is a bay on the coast, with frolicking dolphins and seals.

The illustrations and words dance and sway together to delight with wonder and awe. This book has a dreamy quality with its clever rhythm and pattern created with both the words and pictures. This is a book that bursts with joy. Girls that love horses will adore this book.
