Märta & the silver horse

Erika Eklund Wilson, illustrated by Erika Eklund Wilson

“Once I saw a beautiful horse. A silver horse. The silver

horse was jumping over fences. She was the most

beautiful thing I had ever seen. That was the day I

became mad about horses.”

In the sixth book about Märta, the horse-lover who

starts riding lessons but who is frightened of horses at

the same time, we meet the SILVER HORSE. The

fantastically beautiful horse, who once made Märta mad

about horses, has now moved into the riding school!

But she doesn’t belong to the riding school, she belongs

to a big girl. Just imagine if Märta could be allowed to

stroke her sometimes? But then one day the silver

horse comes charging out from the edge of the wood,

riderless … only the terrified Märta is there to calm her

down, but how?

This is a humorous series called Horses in the Easy-to-

Read collection. The series is about Märta learning to

ride and her thoughts about this. It is an amusing

series describing the love of horses, life in the stables,

feelings and friendship. The new 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 see yourself in the series, which is richly

illustrated with funny illustrations. Don’t miss the first

books in the series Horses, Märta Starts Riding and

Märta Gallops, in which Märta discovers she wants to

learn how to ride a horse and meets her special horse,

Julia, and then faces her fears of riding
