About the book
The Magical Horses is an inspiring story about helping and sharing, hope and believing in yourself, and finding your inner strength.
No matter how small one is, there is always something that can be done to bring change.
The book is empowering as it shows through the story of Kiran how to find new hope and strength, even after a traumatic experience.
Many things in this book, things Kiran, Leo, and Poldy experience are nothing strange for kids, as they kept their openness to life and its magic and beauty, and adults can learn from dipping into this beauty, remembering that magic is all around them and in them, too.
The book sets itself apart as it brings a message and depth, a mission that touches one’s heart. The detailed description of the events and characters and their surroundings, draws the reader into the story, and lets them be a part of it.
Kiran’s grandfather pulled out a small package from underneath his red woolen sweater. He carefully unwrapped the old cloth surrounding it. “My father, your great-grandfather, gave it to me a long time ago, but I never used it,” he said. “He made it all by hand, especially for me,” he added, as he handed an old notebook to his grandson. “I think perhaps it has been waiting all this time for you, its rightful owner.”
“An exciting, fantastic book! It will keep you on the edge of your seat until you’re done!”
– Alex Peters, 11 years, Saskatchewan, Canada

– Andrea Umlauf, Schwaikheim, Germany
“Beate Epp leaves us longing for all the purity and grace that once was and is yet to come. Expand your heart and cheer the oncoming Magical Horses! You may find they live with you still …”
– Suzanne Claire Olaski, Saskatchewan, Canada
“The Magical Horses takes us on a quest into a world where long-forgotten secrets awaken the essence of our true being. A childhood adventure, reminding us of the vibrant celebration of life.”
– Jeannette Lussier, Artist/Poet, Saskatchewan,
