Book Review: Spring fort, Pytte! by Ingrid Flygare

Today, I've finished reading Spring fort, Pytte! by Ingrid Flygare. Three days ago, I've read Du är bäst, Pytte! also by the same author. Both books were borrowed from the Huskvarna bibliotek.

Spring fort, Pytte! (Run fast, Pytte!) is a story about being the smallest and overcoming fear. Pytte is a 4-year-old Shetland pony. He lives at the Granbacken stable with three other horses named Sonja, Jumper, and Attila. They are very supportive of each other and have so much fun together.

In this story, to save his friend, Pytte has to brave the dark and scary forest to get to the veterinarian who is on the other side of their Granbacken stable. One of the horses, Jumper, has eaten some bad hay and is experiencing colic. None of the humans are around so the horses are now desperate to get help. Being the smallest of the four horses, Pytte is the only who can get out of the paddock.

Pytte the brave little pony volunteers himself and off he goes into the forest. What did Pytte find in there? Did he manage to save Jumper? One must read the book to find out!

The narration of the audio edition by Ida Dåverstam is wonderful! I was listening to the audio edition while flipping through the pages. Ingrid Flygare illustrated the book herself and the pictures are delightful.

I heard about the book from Sveriges Radio on the Barnradion channel. I downloaded the audio from Sveriges Radio (they're free!) for all the four books in the series. The other three books in the series are:
1. Du är för liten, Pytte!
2. Du är bäst, Pytte!
