Full of equine detail the book is definitely one for horse-lovers though the story is so strong that it will interest non-horsey types too. The underlying message is that a dream is achievable if you are willing to put in the hard work and make the sacrifices. * CAROUSEL * Certain to be a huge favourite with readers and will bear comparison with classic horse stories by authors such as Patricia Leitch and KM Peyton. * BOOKS FOR KEEPS * ...one of the best characters in this thrilling rags-to-riches tale is Storm Warning. You can't help but identify with this courageous animal and St John makes you feel the thrill of what it must be like to jump over a fence on such a horse with such heart and soul. No nagging doubts, this book's a winner. -- Martin Chilton * TELEGRAPH ONLINE * Lauren St John's The One Dollar Horse is rare among pony books in setting its dream-come-true story in inner-city London... Writerly, full of equestrian knowledge and rich in character - not least of the horse - this is also a tale of first love, and is a handsome package with deep pink-edged pages. -- Nicolette Jones * THE SUNDAY TIMES * There are many twists and turns but the plot is easy to follow and gripping, I would recommend this book for girls aged from twelve through to adult. The author has a flowing style and an art for bringing her characters to life. * NEWBOOKSMAG * The One Dollar Horse is certain to be huge favourite with readers and will bear comparison with classic horse stories by authors such as Patricia Leitch and K M Peyton. * BOOKS FOR KEEPS *
