      A magical tale for very young readers

    Sandmare is a horse drawn in the sand on a beach by a girl named Polly and her father. Pleased with their creation, Polly laments the inevitability of the Sandmare’s being washed away by the tide. But Polly makes a wish that the Sandmare could run free – and at the same time the Sandmare wishes herself, so the wish is very strong. After Polly has left, the Sandmare is able to stand up and run free. Now she must reach the stars, or at sunrise she will turn back into sand. How can she do this? The first step will be to find the girl named Polly . . . The exciting adventure that ensues is accompanied by numerous lively drawings by Ted Dewan.

    Well-known for her award-winning picture books, Helen Cooper displays her immense talents in the very different realm of the early chapter book with this charming new fantasy.
