A prize-winning author/illustrator team bring back the loveable Stripy Horse. This time Stripy Horse and his friends in the junk shop have to try and control the weather that threatens to overwhelm them and the shop. But where is all the rain coming from? Stripy Horse finds the parrot on the weather vane stuck facing North. Can he and his friends pull him round and set things back to normal?

Synopsis

Hold on Tight, Stripy Horse! by Jim Helmore, Karen Wall

Splish! Splash! Splosh! Wet and windy magic was at work in the bric-a-brac shop. Plop! A big drop of icy water landed on the stripy horse's nose and woke him up.

When the weather turns bad in the bric-a-brac shop, Stripy Horse and his friends must save the day. With the help of Muriel, Hermann, and their new friend, Ella the flamingo-shaped umbrella, they must get to the bottom of this tropical storm before poor Roly and Pitch the salt and pepper pots get washed away. Perhaps the painting on the wall and the parrot-shaped weathervane have something to do with it...
