The Lovereading4Kids comment
Nelson to the Rescue is an incredibly humorous and heart-warming tale featuring Nelson the horse and many of his erstwhile friends including two rats, a pigeon who is a Flight Lieutenant and Cardigan, an ex-racehorse. Never does Nelson expect to get a make-over, but that’s exactly what happens and that’s not all - he meets the Prince of Wales, pulls a ceremonial coach and gives a TV interview in Welsh! It’s brilliant and Simon’s first Nelson title A Nod from Nelson is equally brilliant.
Nelson to the Rescue by Simon Weston, David Fitzgerald
When Rhodri and Rhys report that there's a note on Mike the Milk's fridge reading 'Prince of Wales, MBE', Nelson and all the other animals assume that Mike's in line for a medal from the Queen! But when the nosy rats go missing from Pont-y-Cary Dairy early next morning, Nelson is concerned - they must have gone to London. Worried they'll get lost in the big city, Nelson and friends set off to rescue them! Getting to Buckingham Palace is an adventure in itself, but there are plenty more escapades to come. Nelson meets Prince Charles, finds himself on TV and has a make-over! But where are Rhodri and Rhys? And is Mike really in line for an MBE?
"Falklands hero Simon Weston's first novel for children is a humorous story with a real feel-good factor as he tackles the topical issue of environmental awareness." Wales Online review of A Nod from Nelson
"This is a lovely book, written in nice short chapters for sharing aloud, or easy enough to read for a capable 7 year old. It's full of word play.." The Bookbag.co.uk on Nelson to the Rescue
