The only thing twins Fran and Kiera have ever agreed on is thatit would be wonderful to own a pony -- a pony they could gallop and leap over jumps.
One day their father brings them Jigsaw, a Shetland pony who needs a new family. Jigsaw is the perfect pony. He can do anything -- even fit himself into Dad's station wagon for the ride home.
But with Jigsaw comes trouble. The more Fran and Kiera like something, the harder it is for them to share. And they love Jigsaw. Worse, Jigsaw won't gallop far and he won't leap more than a couple of jumps. Is something wrong with the way the twins ride? Or is something wrong with Jigsaw?

Grade 2-4–An old pony that has had multiple owners finds a loving home with twins Fran and Kiera. The girls, who never agree on anything, have separate plans for Jigsaw. Fran dreams of barrel racing and Kiera of show jumping. However, they discover that Jigsaw stops after a few jumps and after running fast. When they realize that he is very old, they both agree–for maybe the first time–that Jigsaw is their friend and that they prefer to keep him instead of getting a younger pony. He is special, and can do amazing things ranging from quieting a neighbor's baby to attending show-and-tell at school to demonstrating his dunking-for-apples talent at a Halloween party. This is a clever and compassionate story with believable human characters and an appealing animal that is both good-natured and adaptable. The black-and-white illustrations convey the same warmth as the text and underscore Jigsaw's gentle temperament and irresistible appearance. Haas once again delivers with a well-written horse tale that will captivate readers.–Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA
