Märta Starts Riding

Erika Eklund Wilson, illustrated by Erika Eklund Wilson

“My name is Märta. I have gone crazy about horses!”
This is how the charming story about Märta starts. Märta saw a girl riding a horse and decided she wanted to learn how to ride a horse to be just like that girl. Sje wants to be a around horses all the time, but she is not sure she wants to be as confident and tough as the other girls who like horses. A dreamer must be allowed to love horses too, right?

This is a new 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 second book in the series Horses, Märta galopps, where Märta discovers that she gets shaky knees and fells scared every time she gets close to the stables even if she loves the horses.
