Radish is a feisty pony--and the best teacher Judy has ever had. He teaches her how to ride, and how to go fast and far, and even how to fall off. But most of all, he teaches her to be patient. And when Judy outgrows him, he teaches Nina all the same things, and most of all, how to be brave.

But girls grow, and ponies stay the same size. What will Radish do with no one to bully--and to teach? It takes his running away for Judy and Nina to find the perfect solution, one that keeps Radish from being outgrown ever again!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 2^-4. Judy is a small girl when Radish, a spunky red pony, comes to live with her. Judy learns to ride and care for the horse, and Radish has a loving companion--until Judy outgrows the pony. Luckily, Judy's family finds a new home for Radish, and the cycle of learning, teaching, and fun starts again with a new girl, Nina. When Nina gets too big for the pony, she and Judy find their old friend a lasting home--a riding camp, where feisty Radish helps new generations of youngsters learn about riding. With basic language, short sentences, and plenty of details about horse care and riding technique, this beginning chapter book is a sure bet for children with horse fever. Margot Apple's handsome, nostalgic illustrations of horses in action enliven nearly every page. --Gillian Engberg"
