What should a horse do when he falls down? Bounce back, of course!
Banjo is a star hoofball player for his team, the Whinnies. Every day he practices with his best friend. After an injury, Banjo does nothing but play Haystation and eat Molasses. Out of shape and no longer a star, Banjo refuses to return to hoofball. It’s only when his best friend is horspitalised that he is motivated to go back to training. Banjo loves being a star again, but is even more pleased to be back in the team.
The appeal of this book is the humour, which had me laughing louder on each subsequent reading. The illustrations are
painted in a simple style and add to the emotion and humour of the book. For 3-8 year olds and anyone who values being part of a team.
