Antonia's greatest love is riding horses. So it's no surprise that her dream is to become a successful show jumper. But when her riding instructor presents an opportunity for Antonia to realize her dream by entering her for a big show-jumping competition, Antonia's courage seems to fail her. After all, not only is Antonia the youngest entrant in the competition, but Elfin Dance, the wild gelding she rides, sometimes has a mind of his own. To make matters worse, Alina-Antonia's antagonist who never misses an opportunity to best her-is entering the competition, too. Does Antonia even stand a chance? A story of perseverance told by Elisabeth ZOller and Brigitte Kolloch, featuring the colorful illustrations of Betina Gotzen-Beek, Antonia and the Big Competition encourages girls to overcome their fears and obstacles in this second book in an exciting new horse series for young readers aged 7 to 10. Readers will learn how to follow their dreams and problem solve by following Antonia's example. The confident and level-headed Antonia is a great role model for young girls and parents will want to continue buying books in this new series as their children strive to be more empowered and a good leader. Sky Pony Press, with our Good Books, Racehorse and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of books for young readers-picture books for small children, chapter books, books for middle grade readers, and novels for young adults. Our list includes bestsellers for children who love to play Minecraft; stories told with LEGO bricks; books that teach lessons about tolerance, patience, and the environment, and much more.
