Belle's Journey

Crow Cottage Publishing


Belle is too old and stiff to pull the ploughs or the wagons anymore. In fact, Molly's horse barely earns her keep by carrying the young girl to piano lessons once a week. When Father wonders if they should get rid of Belle, Molly is delighted at the thought of prancing and galloping on a beautiful new pony.

But one winter day on the way home from piano lessons, Molly and Belle become lost in a sudden blizzard. And Belle, old and stiff as she is, confronts the terrible storm with every ounce of will she possesses. No matter what, Belle will not give up until she brings Molly home.

Set on the prairies during the twenties, Belle's Journey is a moving story of steadfast devotion and a heroic fight for survival. This 20th anniversary eBook edition features beautifully enhanced colour illustrations. Reading ages 4-10.

Was gibt es schöneres als die Freundschaft zu einem Funkelpony? Nichts für Fiona, Aurelia, Jana und Leni! Die vier Freundinnen erleben auch in Band 4 ein neues funkelig-geheimnisvolles Abenteuer mit ihren Lieblingsponys.

Fiona weiß gar nicht, was sie zuerst machen soll: Hofbesitzerin Leo ist ganz niedergeschlagen und alle Späße des Funkelponys Sunny helfen nicht, sie wieder aufzumuntern. Außerdem soll die geheimnisvolle Insel im Funkelsee verkauft werden und das wäre eine Katastrophe! Vor lauter Funkelaufgaben übersieht sie fast einen entscheidenden Hinweis. Doch ihr Funkelpony Sunny ist ja zum Glück auch noch da. Genau wie der Rappe Opal und seine Freundin Jana, die gemeinsam zeigen, dass sich mit der richtigen Portion Funkelmagie am Ende alle Probleme in Luft auflösen…
