The Lovereading4Kids comment
An entertaining and amusing story with a real feel-good factor that's perfect both for reading aloud to youngsters but also terrific as a read alone for the 7+ age range. Nelson is a lovely mellow horse who’s getting old. However he is obliged to come out of retirement and, with the help of his animal friends, he must prevent an environmental catastrophe. The subject matter is very topical as it deals with the human effect on the environment in a way that is easy to understand. This book is Simon Weston’s first novel for children and he is clearly a naturally gifted storyteller.
A Nod From Nelson by Simon Weston, David Fitzgerald
Nelson's got 'retirement'. It's not an illness, just something which happens to old carthorses at the end of their career. But when Nelson's boss, Mike the Milk, has problems with his new milk float, crossword expert Nelson finds himself called out of retirement to head off an environmental disastor.
