    1. This book has been shortlisted for the Australian Children's Book Council Younger Readers book of the Year.This is a lovely quick read book. At just short of 80 pages it is not intimidating for the relucant reader. The story is engaging, with a strong female main character who faces the challenges in her life with determination and guts. She knows what she wants and she is happy to go after it, even in the face of bullies and nay sayers.Mrs Whitlam has a strong Australian flavour and subtlety in [...]

    2. Miss 10 beat me to this one and loved it. Full of characters you can warm to and of course a delicious equine to fall in love with, Mrs Margaret Whitlam. Now that I have seconded her edition, I have to agree. Pascoe sets the scene early, infuses the characters with plenty of grit and sass and steers us along a simple yet captivating tale that is fast and easy to read for readers from 8 or so up. Possessing a substantial Australian indigenous flavour but balanced with just enough 'horsiness' to k [...]

    3. Shortlisted for the CBCA 2017 Book of the Year Younger Readers, this is an easy read novel targetting 10 to 12 year olds. A straightforward horse story where the main character, Marnie, is gifted a horse from a grieving mother whose daughter died in a car accident. Marnie loves her new horse, Mrs Whitlam but has to face some racial abuse and stigmatism from the local 'white' horse crowd. Aboriginality is woven throughout the story, but with no real statement or stance from the author. Issues ten [...]

    4. A beaut book for upper primary students. It will appeal to animal lovers and the storyline deals with racism, bullying, friendship, heroism and families. An easy read, and not too long a book, so reluctant readers shouldn't be intimidated with just shy of eighty pages. I would highly recommend Mrs Whitlam by Bruce Pascoe.

    5. Such a lovely little read that's concise yet heart-felt. Great for reluctant girl readers of 10 - 14, especially those who love animals. Deals well with themes of loneliness, resilience, grief, race relations and bullying, with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure. Marnie shows the reader that, given the right circumstance, we can all be a hero.

    6. A sweet quick read that was on my reading list for the Write Around the Murray festival. I'm not the target audience which my guess would be primary age kids, but who wouldn't want to read about Marnie's strength, courage and sheer joy in her first few days with Mrs Whitlam, the horse named after Margaret Whitlam.

    7. This was a short read (for me) and would really appeal to those kids who like animal stories (especially horse stories) but it is so much more than it. It deals with prejudice both racial and social, grief and healing. A really beautiful book. Not just for young readers.I can see why it was nominated for the CBCA Book Awards.

    8. I loved this book! (and would have also loved it as a horse mad child). A great horsey adventure story with themes of grief, racism and courage. My only complaint is that it was over too quickly. It could easily have been a longer story and still retained the power of an engaging short story.

    9. CBCA 2017 Younger Reader Short List book.Short but incisive. Positive representations with preaching or condescension.Grief permeates, even though MC, Marnie isn't directly affected, so it's quite sad.

    10. Simple warm-hearted story that has been short listed by the Childrens' Book Council of Australia, 2017.Marnie has always wanted a horse of her own (I can relate to that - I did too when I was younger) She does have her dream come true, but due to tragic circumstances. This short novel allows for exploration of many themes - families, discrimination, bullying, Aboriginal perspectives, heroism.Recommended read for Stage 2 and 3 readers.

    11. Marnie Clark of Curdie Vale can ride but she doesn't have a horse.She dreams of owning one and having the whole world to ride it in. Before too long Marnie is gifted Mrs Margaret 'Maggie' Whitlam, a beautiful, big Clydesdale - bold, fearless and able to jump anything.From the very first ride, Marnie and Maggie get more adventure than they bargained for. Soon Marnie is learning to negotiate newfound friendships, pony club and how to stand up for what she believes in. Will her friendship with Geor [...]

    12. This is a heart warming short novel that ticked all the boxes for me - great heroine, diverse background, feel good story.

    13. Read for Children's Book Council of Australia awards.Sweet novelette touching on prejudice, courage, family, happiness and loss.Quite a lovely quick read with shy but courageous Marnie - young Aboriginal girl - as the human lead character. The other magnificent main character in this story is Mrs Whitlam. in this case a horse.but in all ways the equal of Australia's own Mrs Whitlam g and bold.d magnificent too.
