Sylvia Andrews about this book: Nessie's friend moves away which makes her sad, and Tessie, the horse eats too much green grass and becomes ill. You will find out how they cope with their problems in this amusing book about weight loss which children will enjoy hearing and adults will enjoy reading to them. Because childhood obesity is still an issue in the U.S., this is a timely book which includes a small appendix about the problem. I wrote the book because a friend's horse really ate too much grass and foundered herself like Tessie, She had to stay in her stall for a while. Some children in my classes at school have emotional eating problems like Nessie. But these characters don't let it get them down for long. They find fun ways to exercise and control their diet. This book will have special appeal to girls who love horses and horses who like to go to the gym. Questions for readers at the ends of the pages encourage interactive enjoyment. Don't miss this fun and instructive read and think twice before you take your horse to the gym.
