The Gift Horse

Author(s): Sophie Siers

NZ Picture Books | Death and Grieving

Since her mum died, Olivia hasn't felt right. Sometimes she can't breathe properly and she feels funny inside. When she is out on the farm with her dad and brother or tucked up under her blankets things don't seem so bad, but everywhere else she feels like she doesn't fit in. When Dad brings home a horse that's been through its own trauma, together Olivia and Amigo grow to trust each other and forge a path through their own grief and anger.

Olivia is struggling to come to terms with the death of her mum - nothing feels right anymore. But things change when her dad brings a new horse to the farm. Together Olivia and the horse need to find new ways to meet the world an each other.

A book for any ag and for anybody who has lost someone they love.
