A cheeky Paint horse tells his colorful story of the way he sees his world!


The Artful Dodger is a wonderful story about a horse who chooses just the right human and the amazing things they learn about and from each other. The photography is beautiful and illustrates the story perfectly. The author uses humor and heart while she teaches some valuable life lessons. I so enjoyed this book and cannot wait to share it with my students.

Stunning and captivating photography matched with a heart-warming tale with very clever story telling. Dodger and Michelle are meant to be partners. Wonderful book for yourself or a gift to a special friend or young child who loves horses.

The Artful Dodger is a book about a horse that got rescued and how his life was before and after. The book is full of meaning and love, from a horse’s perspective. I would recommend this book to people who love animals and horses. This book teaches you how horses have strong emotions and will care for you and will trust you. It also teaches you about how horses feel what you are feeling, think what you are thinking and how horses need caring and love for any horse to be happy.
