About If Horses Were Wishes:
Katy Robinson, an unhappy young foster child, daydreams constantly – of a proper home with her parents, of having good friends, and of being as popular at school as Sandra Magill. Sandra has an enviable lifestyle in the countryside, with her parents and her horse Tommy, and is always surrounded by friends. But when Katy dreams of doing something admirable to impress Sandra, the results aren’t quite what she had in mind! Her initial shock at waking up to her new status as a horse gradually grows into acceptance. Being cared for by Sandra’s posse, and becoming friends with Tommy, all help. But Katy-the-girl is officially missing and being looked for by the police – and when Sandra and her friends decide to undertake to find their schoolmate, Katy finds she is able to lead them in the right direction. Through various adventures, including putting the school bullies to flight, unexpected friendships and discoveries develop, and the question is – will Katy decide she prefers being a horse, or will she try to find a way to become a girl once more?
Praise for If Horses Were Wishes:
"If Horses Were Wishes" is delightfully imaginative, entertaining to follow,
and the life-lessons presented therein - about friendship, self-worth, and how to
recognize what’s truly meaningful - are readily absorbed. This novel is sure to
become a favourite on the shelves of young people who love horses.'
Karen Molson, author & biographer
Captivating, Stimulating and Educational. Sellers writes from her heart and her
experience. She describes in detail the very soul of the young teenager, as well
as the spirit of the horse.
My younger sister, 'Managed to power through more than 150 pages in one day, putting aside the fourth Harry Potter book that she had been previously reading though.'
