Fourth-grader Ellie James has always wanted a horse, and when she finally gets her own pinto, she gives it a fitting name: Dream. However, just as one dream comes true for Ellie, she finds herself faced with a new set of problems. Among them, her best friend Colt is behaving oddly, and Ellie can’t figure out why.
Performer Casey Holloway delivers a convincing portrayal of this horse-loving heroine, endowing her with warmhearted wonder and playful exuberance. Ellie confronts real problems with which children can relate: shifting friendships, overworked and absent parents, and a brother whose disability presents him with his own obstacles when it comes to making friends. Holloway’s upbeat, optimistic tone sends children a positive message about staying calm and persevering in difficult situations.
Fourth-grader Ellie James and her horse, Dream, are best friends forever. But when her human best friend, Colt, starts acting strange, Ellie determines to fix his problem. She tries to find the perfect horse for Colt. But how? Ellie's brother is struggling to stay on his baseball team, her father is fighting to hold onto his job at the Jingle Bells Ad Agency, and her mother is volunteering at the cat farm and the worm ranch…so, Ellie is on her own. Or is she…? Join Ellie and Colt in their exciting, horse-loving adventures.
