Saving Mississippi by Cornelia Funke

The blurb says:

Every holiday, Emma loves helping her grandma Dolly at her animal sanctuary. At home she isn’t even allowed a guinea pig. While she’s there, Emma’s grandma buys her Mississippi, the beloved horse of an old friend, Mr Clipperbush, who has passed away.

Emma can’t believe her luck—a horse of her own. But suddenly, there’s trouble. Mr Clipperbush’s long-lost nephew wants the horse back—and will stop at nothing to get his way.

What can Emma do? Saving Mississippi means everything…

A bit about the author

Cornelia Funke writes her own stories AND draws all of the pictures! She writes in German and her books are translated into English, but you’d never know.


What is Saving Mississippi all about?

It’s about a young girl called Emma who, while she’s on holiday at her Grandma’s house, gets bought a horse called Mississippi as a treat by her Gran. This leads to her volunteering to work with local vet Mr Knapp and all sorts of other adventures.


What was my favourite bit of the story?

My favourite bit of Saving Mississippi is when Emma volunteers to help at the vet’s surgery and meets a rather chubby old dog who is a little spoiled!


Who would I recommend this book to?
