“Eating the blackberries,
purple and plump,
picking out tree trunks
for scratching the rump…”
‘The Cornish Stories’ are a series of picture books featuring real-life ex-racehorse Baz and his three Dartmoor pony sisters.
“There goes the starter
and off he must run –
chasing and chasing,
the race has begun.”
‘Blackberries aren’t that scary’ is the first in the series and follows Baz’s life from racetrack to hedgerows and fields. Written in a fun clip-clop rhyme, it’s easy to read aloud.
‘Hoofbeats in the Moonlight’ is the second book, and this time readers are whisked away on an adventure to Bodmin Moor. Fast-paced and fun, readers are barrelled along with Baz and his Dartmoor Pony sisters.
The books are perfect for children ages 4+ or anyone with a horse obsession.
