Editorial Reviews

Prolific children’s author Dandi Daley Mackall kicks of her Backyard Horses series by introducing listeners to Ellie James, a nine year-old with an overactive imagination and a passion for horses. Despite her teacher’s disapproval, Ellie decides her fourth grade science project will determine "the best way for me to own a horse". When Ellie unexpectedly spots a horse galloping across the schoolyard, her peers begin to suspect that - far from a scientist - Ellie’s lost it to her daydream delusions. Actress Casey Holloway imbues the horse-loving heroine with amiable, if occasionally misguided, eccentricities. Mackall’s schoolyard relationships are nuanced and convincing, and Holloway’s colorful character acting adds to this authenticity, ensuring that young listeners will relate to this feisty fourth grader.

Publisher's Summary

Fourth-grader Ellie James has a great imagination. She spends a lot of time daydreaming of owning a black stallion show horse and winning trophies in the horse show. But when the answer to all her dreams and prayers gallops into her life, will Ellie be able to recognize it? Join Ellie and her quirky family in their exciting, horse-loving adventures.
