Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Can a short, shaggy, chubby little Icelandic Horse be a famous circus pony? With the help of her mentor and dear friend Denty, a "know it all" little ram, Gerta practices for fame and fortune. In this hilarious parody of the modern search for fabulous fame, we follow Gerta and Denty through her "make over" process. Only Grand Mare, Gerta's level headed grandmother, sees the folly in Gerta's fantasy ambitions. Foolish Gerta must learn for herself that life on the farm is wonderful indeed. Does Grand Mare know that Viking horses have exceptional talents? Will Gerta discover special gifts no other horse can lay claim to? And will Denty realize that he may not be the world's best image consultant? "I was showing the book to my 3 year old cousin, Hannah, and telling her about Gerta, and she pointed to the horse and said "I love her." She also loved Grand Mare "because she's purple." It was pretty cute. Adults will love Denty's brash boy ram persona. And all of us will identify with the quest for being a star in whatever we do. This is a hilariously funny book about an Icelandic horse and a randy ram, of course! Before long, she recruits an incredibly talented local artist, studying at the FIT in NYC, who just happens to have a Scandinavian heritage and who grew up on a ranch. Ladies and Gentlemen: Presenting Gerta's Big Ambition, is quickly gaining such widespread recognition among both children and adults. It's a charmingly illustrated book with an entertaining story that parents will be reading to their children during the day, and then reading again to themselves at night, just to savor that adult humor so plentiful between the lines.
