Join us in welcoming author and illustrator Jennifer Hustis to Best of Books! She will host a special storytime and sign copies of her book, THE WILD HORSE WHO LOVED THE GIRL, on Saturday, Nov. 17 starting at 11:00 am.
THE WILD HORSE WHO LOVED THE GIRL is inspired by a true story and one of many Hustis has gathered from her life of learning with horses. The book tells the story of a wild mustang’s rescue from a shelter for homeless horses by a pre-teenage girl. The young girl carefully nurtures and trains the horse in a program to find homes for these rescued animals. A bond forms between the pair and they compete in horse shows where they receive awards and recognition.
When the training ends, the bond formed between the girl and the once-wild horse makes it difficult for them to separate when the horse is purchased at an auction. Seeing the injustice about to ensue, a stranger steps up and surprises the horse and the girl. This is a book that horse lovers of all ages will enjoy!
Jennifer has a master of fine arts degree in painting and sculpture from Pratt Institute in New York and a bachelor's of fine arts from the University of Oklahoma. She shares her gifts by teaching all ages and creating interactive art programming for museums, non-profits and community public projects. THE WILD HORSE WHO LOVED THE GIRL is her first children’s book.
