The Lovereading4Kids comment
This edition of The Little White Horse celebrates the release of the motion picture with 8 pages of colour stills taken from the film.
The novel has been a favourite of many a child since it was first published back in 1947, the year in which it won the prestigious Carnegie Award. It was also much loved by J.K. Rowling. It is the story of Maria Merryweather, a plain (ginger!) orphan sent with her dyspeptic governess to live with her only surviving relative, Sir Benjamin, in the picturesque Moonacre valley. There she discovers a mystery and an ancient wrong that only she, her friend Robin, and their variously magical animal friends must put right in order to bring peace to the land.
REVIEW FROM A FAN IN THE UNITED STATES:
The Movie was fantastic! It had humour and excitement, it was just overall a good movie! The characters Miss Heliotrope and The Chef were awesome. They made me laugh so hard! I can't wait for everyone to see this movie it's really good! The acting was fantastic by the way! Go see this movie, it's really good.

The Secret of Moonacre is an enchanting tale of magic and adventure. It follows the quest of thirteen-year-old Maria Merryweather, Dakota Blue Richards, who is left orphaned after the death of her father. Dying penniless, her father leaves her with only her loyal governess Miss Heliotrope, Juliet Stevenson, to care for her and a huge, musty, old, leather bound book: “The Ancient Chronicles of Moonacre Valley”. Perplexed by her father’s mysterious legacy, Maria is told she must leave London and go to the country where she will live with her uncle, Sir Benjamin Merryweather, Ioan Gruffudd. It is there Maria uncovers the dark truth of the ancient curse that has nourished the feud that has been destroying Moonacre Valley for centuries….

When Maria Merryweather arrives in Moonacre, she is fascinated by the mysterious story of the long-lost Moon Princess and the magical little white horse. Before long she finds herself involved with an ancient feud, which she is determined to solve. And she 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
