A GOLD Mom's Choice Awards® Winner and a Five Stars Readers' Favorite®!! This emotional story is about relying on each other to survive human cruelty, wild animals, and uncaring nature. "This gripping tale will appeal to a wide array of young readers, including horse lovers: the strong friendship the book portrays and the memorable adventures it details invite any reader to identify with the hero horse and his heroine girl." --CS Editor "Their adventures and their strong sense of responsibility for the other make them a powerful team, one that can survive the odds of thirst and starvation and wild predators. With charming pencil drawings to help carry the story along, this is a great story for young readers, especially those with a passion for horses. Wonderful descriptive passages pull the reader right into the story." *****Five Stars Readers' Favorite® STORY: In a time of economic turmoil, a young girl fights for her stallion's freedom from his new cruel owner. In her desperate attempt to save her horse, they suddenly find themselves lost in the silent and undisturbed Sonoran Desert of Arizona that is merely a home for its creatures, both dead and alive. The girl and her beloved dark bay stallion, faced with horrific challenges as they try to find their way home, must fend for themselves in this merciless desert. With death waiting to capture them in its clutches, the girl and her horse wander aimlessly through this uncaring land with only love and undeniable loyalty to each other keeping them alive. "A book for everyone. Had me hooked from the beginning to the end. Definitely had my emotions going throughout the entire story. I think it's something that everyone can relate to as it touches on parts of all of us. It's also a story about not giving up when you love someone (horses not excluded)." --R A Wylie, Verified Amazon Customer

About the Author

A multiple MOM'S CHOICE AWARDS® Winner and FIVE STARS READERS' FAVORITE author/illustrator, Liana-Melissa Allen has written and illustrated eight popular books for children and youth. She is a cartoonist, writer, and pianist.

"I love to create characters that range from the whimsical to the anamorphic goofballs, to the awesomely abnormal humans. I write and illustrate children's books including a picture book series for ages 5 to 10 called 'A Horse Valley Adventure'. 'Max's Day at School' is my latest and third book of the series.

I also have a 'Horse Valley Toons' comic strip on my website that follows the comical adventures of my Horse Valley crew, Max, Jack, Lax, Donkey, and the young mischievous Twiddle and Dwiddle.

My home is in Southern California with a playful yellow lutino budgie named Peeps that is always willing to help me when I get stuck on a project. Visit my website at LMABOOKS.COM for more about my books and to download some of my Horse Valley characters for your young ones to color...and also enjoy my cartoons and some of my jazz and classical piano while there!"
