‘Mini Whinny: No Place Like Home’ by Stacy Gregg

Mini Whinny

Mini Whinny

Mini Whinny, the mischievous little horse, is back – and her home is in disarray.

When a nearby petting zoo catches fire, the homeless animals come and stay at Blackthorn Stables – and Mini Whinny’s life is turned upside down. “Stables are only for ponies!” Mini Whinny huffed.

She builds a wall to try and keep the animals out of her stall, but when that fails and frustrations reach an all-time high, she realises they want to get home as much as she wants them to. Mini Whinny decides to stage a circus show to raise money to help get the animals back to their home.

This is the 4th boisterous story in this series of horsey friendship from internationally bestselling Kiwi author Stacy Gregg and talented illustrator Ruth Paul. A perfect gift for the 3-7 age group – especially those who sometimes forget that it’s more fun to share!
