The Lovereading4Kids comment
Nelson at Sea is the third in Simon Weston's humorous and heart-warming story that champions friendship and community spirit. This bestselling series charts the adventures of Nelson, a delightful horse with a very practical and down-to-earth attitude to life. Nelson the carthorse lives with Mike the milkman at the St Mary Dairy in Pont-y-cary. Life is always an adventure for Nelson and his stablemates; with two rats called Rhodri and Rhys, a pigeon with no sense of direction, an ex-racehorse named Cardigan, a frog in a bow-tie, and a bunch of rugby-playing ducks (the All-Quacks), so chaos and a lot of fun is often just around the corner!

Nelson at Sea by Simon Weston, David Fitzgerald
In this new escapade, Nelson and his stable mates are very, very excited. When they spot a travel brochure in Mike the Milk's kitchen, they assume that they're all going on holiday. But when Mike explains that he's the only one who'll be taking a break to Llandudno, they decide to book a seaside break of their own - to Tenby! Their landlady Ms Rhonda 'Sea View' Pugh is less than impressed with her more unusual guests - undeterred, they set about having fun on their holiday. But when an emergency arises on the beach, the gang springs into action to help the local lifeboat crew, and make a few new friends along the way.
"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
