The Lovereading4Kids comment
A classic story of the amazing adventures of a toy horse made by the wise old toymaker, Uncle Peder. From the moment it has been made the Little Wooden Horse is special and different. Above all, it doesn’t want to be parted from its kindly maker! But off into the world the Little Horse must go and bravely he does so and with great determination to make money despite some terrible things happening to him on his great adventure before he returns at last to his master. Vivian French’s foreword is a great addition as it gives her reasons for loving this heart warming story.
One of a range of Macmillan Classics, beautifully produced hardback editions of some of the best-loved stories from the past. Each has a introduction by another author who, in their turn, have been influenced by the great writers of these books.
Adventures of the Little Wooden Horse: Macmillan Classics Edition by Ursula Moray Williams
When Uncle Peder the toymaker falls on hard times, his little wooden horse must go out into the world to seek his fortune. But whether he's working in a coal mine, sailing the seven seas with a band of pirates, or walking the tightrope in a circus, the loyal little horse only has one wish: to return to his beloved master. Gloriously illustrated with the original line drawings by Joyce Lankester Brisley, a ribbon marker and a foreword by Vivian French, this beautiful hardback edition of Ursula Moray Williams's Adventures of the Little Wooden Horse is a truly special gift to treasure.
