A fabulous story told by Bucephalas, the remarkable stallion who takes the Greek leader, Alexander the Great into battle. Becephalas gives a wonderful account of how it feels to be the mount of the young boy who grows into a brave Prince who becomes a conquering hero. A striking and powerful story with a refreshingly original angle.


I Am The Great Horse by Katherine Roberts

From the moment the battle-scarred horse Bucephalas, allows a prince and a runaway girl to sit on his back, he is bound to them for ever. The prince is the young Alexander, who he proudly carries into battle, blazing a trail to the very edge of the world in his master's search for glory and adventure. The girl, Charm, is a lowly stable girl, who brushes away the ghosts Bucephalas sees and forgives his arrogant ways. But unlike the golden Alexander, Charm has darker reasons to stay by his side. Through the eyes of the horse, history, mystery and adventure unfold.
