Bramble and Maggie by Jessie Haas - ADVISABLE

Haas, Jessie and Illustrated by Friend, Alison Bramble and Maggie 56 pgs. Candlewick, 2012. $12.81.  (Rating: G)

Maggie wants a horse and Bramble wants a person. Bramble has turned down so many potential owners, that she is now Free, and no one is left to give her a home. When Maggie’s parents take a chance, will the Bramble let someone take care of her and will Maggie learn what it will take to be friends with Bramble.

I LOVED this story, it subtly takes the “human gets a pet” theme, and makes it more about the pet finding the right human. It was patient and hopeful and well written!
