'It won't surprise you that we are big fans of the Isla & Pickle stories that star a feisty wild ginger-haired little girl and her adorably naughty Shetland pony... This is a delightful story about friendship and enjoying life -- messy or not! The illustrations are delightful and packed full of humour and you are bound to fall in love with little Pickle and his loyal friend Isla. We love it!' -- BookBairn, book blogger 'Kate McLelland's bright and funny illustrations make this book instantly appealing... A perfect book for fans of horses and ponies that is sweet and full of fun.' -- Acorn Books, book blogger '[A] gorgeous story' -- Delightful Book Reviews, book blogger 'Pickle is such an adorable character and we love the way that so much of the humour in the story comes from Kate's fabulous illustrations. Isla and Pickle are characters that children will easily identify with and they share a strong bond. Isla & Pickle: The Highland Show also introduced my daughter to the concept of highland games and gave us a flavour of Scottish life -- we'd love to have tartan wellies like Isla!' -- Story Snug, book blogger '[A] lovely picture book for children... Children will enjoy the bright, colourful illustrations and there are lots of details to point out and talk about. The friendship between wee Isla and her pony is clear to see and Pickle's antics will have young children giggling away and wondering what he will get up to next. Pickle is certainly a pony who is full of character. Whatever the outcome of the competition, Isla knows that you don't have to be perfect to be a winner! Isla & Pickle is a delightful book, with eye-catching illustrations and is a lovely portrayal of friendship.' -- Portobello Book Blog, book blogger
