Märta Rides Astray

Erika Eklund Wilson, illustrated by Erika Eklund Wilson

Horses, humour and really easy to read! “Today we are going riding in the forest! We are a bit afraid, but luckily I am going to ride Julia.”

In the fourth book about Märta, a girl who loves horses and has started at the riding school but at the same time is afraid of horses. Now it is time to ride into the forest with the horses. But what happened? Where did the others go? It seems that Märta had ridden astray… she is lost.

Märta is crazy about horses even if she gets shaky knees and feels scared as she gets close to the stables. Even a dreamer must be allowed to love horses, right?

This is humoristic series called Horses in the Easy-to-Read collection. The series is about Märta who starts riding and her thoughts around this. It is an amusing series describing the love for horses, the life in the stables, feelings, and freindship. The first reader also learns some facts about riding.

The books are written and illustrated by Erika Eklund Wilson and can be read by both horse lovers and those scared of horses. The everyday situations are described with a lot of warmth and you can recognise yourself in the series, richly illustrated with funny illustrations.

Don’t miss the other books in the series Horses, Märta Starts Riding, Märta Galopps, and Märta at the Show Jumping Competition. In the books Märta discovers she wants to learn how to ride a horse and meets her special horse, Julia, and she faces her fears of horses and riding.
