    My daughter and I both enjoyed this book and its actually a pretty good story about a little girl who has to save her pony from a mythical creature who keeps stealing it. It goes on about what Beatrice does to find out who/what is stealing her pony every night and what she can do to stop it/or catch it. As far as stories go, its pretty good. Not to short, not to long. Just the right elemants to make it a good story.The illustrations are different and at first I didn't like them but they kind of grow on you after awhile. Nice examples of problem solving skills for young kids.

    Summary: Beatrice finds her pony a mess one morning. The baker tells Beatrice that a lutin must have come during the night and rode her horse. Beatrice sprinkles flour on the floor of the stable. Sure enough, in the morning, Beatrice sees little footprints in the flour. She goes to the baker for advice. That night, Beatrice hides her pony in the cellar. The following morning, Beatrice's whole house is a mess, but her pony is safe. Beatrice goes to the baker for a third time. The baker pretends to be Beatrice's horse in the stable. When the lutin comes, Beatrice captures the creature. It never bothers her pony again.Uses: independent reading for transitional readers, recommend to children who like horses, who like reading mysteries, or those young girl who need exposure to a clever female characterLiterary Devices: onomatopoeia, simileSocial issues: being brave, problem solvingOther: Illustrations are a little odd, but overall, the text is okay. The main character is a strong, clever female, something rarely seen in children's literature.

    This story actually surprised me, mainly because I thought the real culprit was somebody rather mundane. But clever Beatrice is told the truth and nabs the bad guy all on her own. The heroine is spunky, bright, full of ideas and fiercely loyal, all qualities that make her very likeable. The illustrations are flat, broad daubs of warm colors with aspects that jut into the white pages holding the print or are bound with representations of wooden planks. They give the story a homey, autumnal feel of a peasant life where humans and the otherworldly would intersect in each other’s lives, if not always to everyone’s advantage.

    This is an entertaining story in the Clever Beatrice series by Margaret Willey and Heather M. Solomon. It shows how Beatrice uses her wits to protect her pony and drive a mischievous lutin away. The narrative is fun to read aloud and the distinctive illustrations complement the story nicely. We really enjoyed reading this book together.

    This is a folklore book. This book is from the series Clever Beatrice. This book has a few the awards such as the Parent’s Choice Award, Los Angeles Time Best Book Award, and the Horn Book Fanfare Award. This book is about a spunky little who is out to bust somebody for riding her pony late at night. She cannot wait for help so she goes about it herself. I gave the book four stars because I love the illustrations with their warm inviting colors but I wish they were brighter to attract more children. The book is fully of adventure from Beatrice and how she finally takes down the bad guy.

    This would be a fun read aloud, and the repetition of structure as each new problem arises is great for helping kids predict what the bread maker will do, the mother will say, and how Beatrice will solve the problem.

    This is the first Beatrice book where Beatrice is truly clever instead of just sneaky. I liked this book better than the other two in that respect and of course, as usual, I really like Heather Solomon's illustrations. 3.5 stars.

    This is a great problem solving book. I will use for examples of problem solving using the resources available to you. Students can see how Beatrice comes up with ideas to solve her dilemma.

    You enjoyed this one. It may have made more sense if we'd started at the beginning of the series, though.

    Can clever Beatrice save her pony from a mysterious night time visitor? You bet she can! With or without help from the town baker! Such a clever girl!
