LoveReading View on The Young Performing Horse

Victorian London, splendidly imagined by Quentin Blake with typical wit and vitality, is the setting for this very entertaining story.  When hard times hit the Priddy family the children Vicky and Bertie know just what to do: they head off to make their fortune with the clever little horse bought at auction and amazing everyone with its cleverness ever since. It takes seconds for theatrical impresario Mr Crumbles to recognise the little horse as a dramatic genius and fame and fortune do indeed follow, as well as a meeting with the queen! A wildly imaginative story, delightfully told - adults will spot the various references to Dickens throughout. ~ Andrea Reece
