Antonia the Horse Whisperer: The Rosenburg Riding Stables Book 1 by Elisabeth Zöller and Brigitte Kolloch, with color illustrations by Betina Gotzen-Beek, is a beautifully told story of a friendship between girl and horse. This book highlights a classic first love for many girls and sets the stage for a new horse series for young readers. Rosenburg Riding Stables gets a new addition when a famous French jockey boards his prize gelding, Elfin Dance there. Horse-crazy Antonia is overcome with joy and excitement. Antonia immediately forms a deep connection with Elfin Dance, but no one else at the stable can get near him; he bucks them, runs away, and is generally cranky around anyone except Antonia. But while Antonia is fully capable of looking after Elfin Dance, will the famous Frenchman allow an eleven-year-old girl to care for his prize horse? When the jockey turns up unexpectedly to check on his Elfin Dance after a particularly heavy storm, will everything come unraveled with the horse’s training, or can Antonia save the day? Written for children in grades 3-5.
