Ghostly horses, grilling sausages and a brilliant adventure!
Elina has been given the best present in the world! Well, apart from being given Sigge, of course. She’s been invited on an adventure trek with Eric, Simon and Ingela, and she will be riding Sigge! Grilling sausages by the camp fire, the monster from the lake, a treasure hunt and ghostly horses await…

The Sigge books form a series about horses written by Lin Hallberg and illustrated throughout by Margareta Nordquist. Everybody Loves Sigge was awarded a prize by the Book Jury, which is children’s own list of the year’s best books. The books have also been praised by critics and by those who work with children and in libraries.
The series is about Elina and her friends who hang out at the charming Shetland pony stables in Broby which is run by Ingela, the best riding instructor in the whole wide world! This is where Elina meets Sigge, the sweetest little Shetland pony she’s ever seen.
