At last Elina has become a stable girl and is allowed to be part of the stable gang. Of course it’s tired old Atle she has to look after and not the wonderful Sigge, but it’s still great to feel like one of the big girls and it is almost like having a horse of her own. Everything is fun until the day when something dreadful happens to Atle. Is it Elina’s fault…?

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 the list of the year’s best books chosen by Swedish children themselves. The books have also been praised by the 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 are 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.
