    1. This was a feel-good, predictable, but fun success story. 10 year old Charlie Bass, aka Thunder Thighs (at least to her brothers), saves the farm by buying a racehorse that won't run for anyone else & making it into a champion. It reminded me a lot of The Mad Scientists' Club, a favorite when I was about Charlie's age. Both books feature bright children who hit the books, believed in their goals, tried hard, & won! Great stuff.A typical pony is a main character. He's an escape artist, re [...]


    2. Funny, heart-warming and feminist- what a brilliant children's book! Perfect for any child, regardless of gender, but I particularly recommend it for girls (Charlie is a wonderful role model) and animal lovers. You don't have to be a child to read it, either- Clare Balding is as hilarious as you would expect. I particularly loved the cows named after celebrities and characters.Charlie Bass is a lovely, clever, resourceful character that never gives up and looks out for her family. She never lets [...]


    3. Clare Balding is one of my favourite television personalities. I listened to the audio book of her book My Animals and Other Family in 2017, which was delightful, as is this, her first children’s book. Clare has a real knack for telling a story and telling it well. I recognised quite a few elements from her own experiences growing up.This is the story of a 10-year-old girl called Charlie Bass, who ends up buying a tricky racehorse, fully believing he will win the Derby at Epsom, the biggest ra [...]


    4. Really enjoyed reading this heart warming story to my 8 year old daughter. Charlie, a ten year old girl is a wonderfully inspiring main character. Add in some fart humour - not that that's a big part of the book - and it's a winner for me and my daughter. Looking forward to the next book, Clare.


    5. A perfect warm and fuzzy book to chase away the January blues. Charlie’s determination and ambition shine through like a beacon to any girl who has ever doubted herself or been poked fun at for her ‘thunder-thighs’ A great mix of horse racing knowledge and enthusiasm mixed with an important message about never failing to dream. What an endearing read!


    6. Charlie Bass is a delight together with the rest of her family, and the names they have given the farm animals had me laughing out loud. A great story which had me on the edge of my seat a few times. Highly recommended



    7. My pupils recommended this book to me and they weren't mistaken. If you like Jacqueline Wilson books you will love this one.


    8. Lovely story - read with my 4 & 7 year olds. Nice to have a main female character who is determined & strong.




    9. This is a fun and easy to read story with the message about believing in yourself and never giving up on a dream!10 year old Charlotte 'Charlie' Bass is obsessed with horses and lives on a farm with her family and despite money being tight, it doesn't dampen her enthusiasm of believing that good things are just around the corner. She is even teased at school but she rises above this and is quite content to be friends with Polly who shares her love for horses.Charlie comes up with a plan to help [...]
