This is a wonderful book for young readers. It has ponies and puppies and plenty of page turning adventure. The eight and nine year old sisters even learn a lesson about why sharing a room at grandma's might not be so terrible after all. The language is perfect for young people just gaining independence with chapter books. The illustrations are beautiful and really add to the appeal. I heartily recommend this book. It's the first in a series, and I can only imagine little girls eagerly yearning for the remaining books in the series. I hope the author writes many more!

This was a cute story, but I had some problems with it being inconsistent with the illustrations. The dog is referred to as a collie, but looks nothing like one. It looks more like Benji in my opinion. Every time the dog is mentioned, which was fairly often, this bothered me more and more. I did enjoy the story about Tori and Jewel though. Tori is in love with the pony, but has to earn the privilege of riding the feisty pony. Tori and her sister have a few incidents while at Gran's ranch, but they do their best to pitch in and help out. A cute story, but it needed just a little more work. *This book was received in exchange for an honest review*
