9780099627203: The Sand Horse (Red Fox picture books)

One windy summer day when there are white horses out to sea, an artist decides to sculpt a sand horse on the beach at St Ives. But the sand horse is not satisfied just to lie on his side - he gallops away to join the white horses prancing on the ocean, which marks the climax of the tale.

Review:

Beautifully written and illustrated, ...a perfect example of how a story can be firmly rooted in reality and yet float gently off and develop into an irresistible fantasy.

(Sally Grindley )

A poetic and haunting picture book.

( The Signal )

Picture books of this calibre are rare and we cannot recommend this one more highly.

( Books for Children )

The best children's book illustrations he has ever done. ( Observer )

Ann Turnbull's story of art and liberty is a simple yet affecting tale. The plight of the sand horse is moving for all that it is inanimate and its wild joy once transformed is almost infectious. Furthermore, the story is brought joyously to life by the evocative illustrations of Michael Foreman, a resident of St Ives. ( Write Away 20070303)
