All eleven-year-old Pip wanted was a best friend. When Pip
gets a horse for her birthday, she’s delighted. She thinks that the horse she
names Buck will be her best friend from the moment that they meet. But she
finds out that friendship does not come that easily.
Pip’s father gently guides her so that Pip can discover for
herself how to make Buck a true friend. Pip's new friend, Buck, has a story of
his own. After leaving his own herd, to move to Pip's house, he is looking for
a relationship that will help him feel safe. He, too, learns that making a
friend takes patience and understanding.
Told from the
perspectives of both Pip and Buck, The Gift is a heartwarming and valuable lesson about
friendship, trust and love, that will appeal to a wide variety of readers.
