As delightful as ever, Stripy Horse leads an exploration through colour in this enchanting and robust board book. A red balloon and a silver moon are just some of the things that entertain Stripy Horse in a delightful day of play.


Stripy Horse, Just for You by Jim Helmore, Karen Wall

Thrills and spills are the order of the day for Stripy horse as he finds out all about colours that he sees during his day. It's a great way to introduce colours and simple objects to babies and toddlers in a fun way. Stripy Horse is a hugely lovable animal in children's book publishing at the moment and we're thrilled to see the publisher has decided to create some sturdy board books for babies and toddlers featuring this character who has, until now featured only in picture books more suitable for 3+ year olds. A sister board book is called Stripy Horse, Time for Bed.
