Juvenile Horse Diaries Black Cloud by Patricia Hermes. Saige’s new school year isn’t starting out well. She and her best friend, Tessa, seem to be growing apart. And because of funding cuts, Saige won’t have art—her favorite class—at school this year. Her grandma Mimi suggests that she do something about it, such as lead a “save the arts” parade and fund-raiser on Mimi’s horse Picasso. Soon Saige is training Picasso for the parade, which helps take her mind off her troubles at school. Then Mimi is injured in an accident, and Saige waits and worries, wondering what she can do. Can she ride Picasso in the parade and make her grandma proud? Can she still raise money to protect art at school? Saige is determined to try. In a battle of wits, who will win? Little Red or the Wolf? The epic struggle between the two takes some unexpected twists in this fractured retelling of the beloved fairy tale. Who do you trust? What do you do? When You Choose the path through three new versions of this fairy tale, the consequences can be chilling, surprising, or disastrous. Little Red Riding Hood (a You Choose book) by Eric Braun.
