What would Radish do if Judy got a new horse? Would he have to leave? Where would he go? The horse Radish narrates this story and he's a likably feisty character. I would definitely suggest this and other books by the author to young horse fans. Nov 01, Bonnie rated it really liked it. Another cute kids' book I picked up from a recent library sale. Adorable illustrations and the story is from the pony's POV rather than his girl owner s.
Kind of sad to watch Radish moving on to new owners, but unlike household pets such as cats and dogs which stay with a loving family for a lifetime, girls physically outgrow their first pony and it's not unusual to see them go on to new homes. So this was a cute and touching story of a sometimes persnickety pony and his search for a "forever" Another cute kids' book I picked up from a recent library sale.

RUNAWAY RADISH Jessie Haas PONY Horse Story 2001 Hcv DJ 1st
A seriously sweet and touching transitional reader chapter book about the spirited pony Radish who beloved and loving young girl owners keep outgrowing her. After Radish is sold to a new girl, Radish poignantly searches out her old owner. Once she is outgrown again, however, the perfect solution for Radish is finally found.
I don't usually go for animal stories, especially horses. I was never a horse girl. But this book really played on my heartstrings.
