Bramble and Maggie Give and Take

By Jessie Haas
Illustrated by Alison Friend

“Portraying human and animal characters empathetically, the narrative features moments of humor as well as insight. . . . Highly satisfying.” — Booklist

Maggie loves introducing her new horse, Bramble, to the neighborhood, the beach, and the backyard. Bramble has fun too, once she is cajoled into participating by a well-timed carrot or two. But when Maggie has to go to school, Bramble is bored and lonely and gets into some trouble. This charming and funny early reader flows at just the right pace for kids who are learning that others don’t always do exactly what you want, but that friends find a way to give and take.

  • Second book about the growing friendship between a girl and her pony.
  • After Marguerite Henry, Jessie Haas is THE horse story writer with over 30 titles to her credit - most of them about horses.
