Book review: The Quicksand Pony

The Quicksand Pony by Alison Lester, ISBN 9781742378008, Allen & Unwin

the quicksand pony

REVIEWED BY KAILANI, 8, QLD

This book was a gift from Kailani’s Auntie Emma.

Biddy is ten years old and lives on a cattle farm near the headland with her Mum, Dad and Grandpa. Biddy wants to go on the cattle muster this year with her parents.

One day at school Biddy tells her friend, Irene about going on the muster and Irene tells her about the disappearance of her Auntie Joycie and her cousin Joe nine years ago.

Does Biddy get to go on the muster?

What will happen on the muster?

Will Jocyie and Joe be found?

To find out you will need to read this book.

I recommend this book for kids 4–14 (4–7 year olds might need someone to read it to them) and I rate this book 9 ½ out of 10.

This is Kailani’s first book review for Alphabet Soup (thanks, Kailani!). If YOU would like to send us a book review, check out our submission guidelines. Happy reading!
