Review:

The style sits between A Little Princess and the Famous Five, with delighted description of clothing, furnishings and food... --William Thomas, Empire

From the Publisher:

The Little White Horse
"For a fleeting instant Maria thought she saw a little white horse with a flowing mane and tail, head raised, poised, halted in mid-flight, as though it had seen her and was glad."

The beautiful valley of Moonacre is shadowed by the memory of the Moon Princess and the mysterious little white horse. When Maria Merryweather comes there on a visit she finds herself involved with an ancient feud. She is determined to restore peace and happiness to the whole of Moonacre Valley. And Maria usually gets her own way* ?

"The Little White Horse was my favourite childhood book. I absolutely adored it. It had a cracking plot. It was scary and romantic in parts and had a feisty heroine." - J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books, writing in The Bookseller.

Suitable for: Children aged 9+

ELIZABETH GOUDGE was a popular adult novelist who also wrote a number of well-loved children's fantasies. She was awarded the Libary Association's Carnegie Medal for The Little White Horse in 1946.
