Once Upon a Horse: The Flying Horse
Middle grade readers will love reading The Flying Horse, which is the first book in the new Once Upon A Horse series.
This book is fictional, but the horses and the people featured in the book are inspired by actual horses and people.
In fact, author Sarah Maslin Nir took inspiration from her own horse, Trendsetter, when she wrote this book.
She also had undiagnosed dyslexia as a child, so the themes of the story are personal for her.
This gives the book an authentic tone that children will be drawn to.
The Flying Horse
Pub Date March 14, 2023
Trendsetter is a horse destined to fly—in more ways than one.
Sarah is a horse-loving seventh grader who has a secret and a fear of losing the one thing she loves most in the world.
Separated by an ocean, a horse and a girl’s parallel struggles to be their best include lots of luck and grit, some stubbornness, and a few failures.
It is only when they find each other that the two kindred spirits find themselves.
Together they learn that what’s important in life isn’t greatness—it’s being great at being you. Inspired by a real horse and a real girl, The Flying Horse will make horse-lovers’ hearts soar.
