Sally and Sigge
Sally and SiggeLin Hallberg, illustrated by Margareta Nordqvist
A new term starts at the riding school and the riding instructor Ingela says that everyone must try and ride other horses than their usual one in order to be a really experienced rider. When Elina is to ride Nanou, tears are not far away. Why is Nanou so angry and wants to bite all the time? Ingela thinks that Nanou is perhaps tired. She needs a rest and so they need a new horse at the riding school. All the students pack into the car to fetch the new horse and are really excited. What is the new horse Sally going to be like?
