Description - Pony Play by Patrick Merrell
Jackie the little Jack Russell terrier and Barney the barn owl see all the goings-on around the horse farm every day. They provide lively running commentary and silly horsy humour in this delightful collection of dot-to-dots, word games, mazes, fill-in-the-blanks, and logic problems - each puzzle specially created for horse-crazy kids. Five sections - Walk, Trot, Show Time, Canter, and Gallop - feature puzzles that progress in difficulty, encouraging children to take the challenge and expand their skills as they work their way through the book, and perhaps through their riding lessons as well! By the time children are galloping through the final chapter their puzzle skills will be blue-ribbon impressive.Each illustrated page is packed with complementary drawings, clever asides from Jackie and Barney, perhaps a riddle or a joke, and the puzzle itself. There is always plenty of room for small fingers to solve the challenge, even when the child makes a mistake or two. Educational and entertaining, "Pony Play" stimulates kids' imaginations and feeds their desire to learn more about horses.
