The Lovereading4Kids comment
A classic fantasy adventure story that has transfixed generations since it was first published in 1946. This wonderful new hardback edition, cloth bound and slip cased is truly special and a must for a child’s bookshelf. The writing is lyrical so whether you’re an adult or a child you’ll be transported into the world of over 150 years ago and yet it feels so fresh and real that you could almost be there alongside the Maria, the 13 year old heroine of the story. In early 2009, a film is to be released of The Little White Horse starring Dakota Blue Richards (played Lyra in The Golden Comprass) as Maria.

'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 orphaned Maria Merryweather comes there to stay, 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
