Friendship, horses and adventure in an Australian country town combine in this collection of four full-colour Bonnie and Sam stories for young readers. Created by two of Australia's bestselling storytellers and illustrators.
Bonnie and Sam are best friends. No one loves horses the way they do. When Bonnie whispers to them, they understand, and Sam always knows if they need a drink, or a hug, or a race around the paddock.
Come along with Bonnie and Sam on four great adventures:
The Shadow Brumby
The Circus Pony
Racing the Tide
Saving Mr Pinto
