The Story of Louisa
Who Loved Pretty Things
Drawn by Kaye
Published by Puffin Picture Books
Once there was a horse called Louisa. She lived in a country
town in the south of France. She was very good and gentle, and she loved
her master dearly. She also loved all pretty things. It made her very sad
that her master was so poor that he could not afford to paint her cart
or give her pretty bridles.
Her master made his living by collecting and selling
all the rubbish of the little town. Their cart was old and falling to bits,
and the bridle was a patchwork of old straps and rope.
How she did long to be as grand as the other horses!

After various different adventures Louisa who has been sent by
her elderly master to look for better employment for herself finds a job

all over the world.
