The Lovereading4Kids comment
From former Children's Laureate and award-winning author Michael Morpurgo comes an utterly absorbing, yet haunting tale created in the form of linked stories that will grip the reader from the very first page. Set in Cornwall so great for all those children and adults who love this rugged county with its windswept coastline and it is also a must for animal lovers and lovers of fantasy.
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for The White Horse of Zennor a small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'I loved all of these mysterious tales. If you like myths and magic then I'm sure you'll love them too.'

The White Horse Of Zennor by Michael Morpurgo
Since the beginning of time, strange and mysterious things have happened here...
At the furthest edge of Britain, where the sea gently washes over the land and myths brush against reality, lies Zennor. Set in a churchtown where men become beasts and ghosts roam freely, these are haunting and unforgettable tales where magic lies around every corner.
Below is a review written by Sam Harper, age 10.
I loved all of these mysterious tales. If you like myths and magic then I'm sure you'll love them too.
The White Horse of Zennor is a set of five short stories which are all linked to each other. At first it is hard to see how they are related but if you read them in order it all makes sense at the end. Each story is unique but they are all set in the same place, the small village of Zennor in Cornwall.
The Giant's Necklace was my favourite as it is a spooky tale with ghosts, where nothing is as it seems.
The White Horse of Zennor is the story of a strange creature which is able to grant people wishes if they are kind to it.
Gone to Sea is about a boy who has problems walking. He is constantly ridiculed and finds it hard to fit in but with the help of an old fisherman he eventually finds happiness elsewhere.
Milk for the Cat contains more mysterious creatures who take care of a farmers livestock until he dies and the farmers son takes over. He doesn't believe in the creatures and so breaks his agreement with them and this has bad consequences.
Finally, Mad Miss Marney is about a girl who creates a 'zoo' of animals which she has found in the wild and a suspected witch who helps her to heal them.
