Puffin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of The Racehorse Who Wouldn't Gallop, written and read by Clare Balding.
Charlie Bass is a horse-mad nine-year-old who dreams of owning her own pony. So when her eccentric parents announce that they are going to buy a racehorse, Charlie is thrilled.
The horse they buy, Noble Warrior, looks the part: strong, fit and healthy. There's just one problem - he won't gallop. In fact, he won't even trot round the field without his best friend, Percy, a naughty palomino pony, at his side.
But Charlie is convinced that Noble Warrior has what it takes to be a champion - he just needs the right motivation...
A classic, funny animal story perfect for fans of Dick King-Smith and My Family and Other Animals.
There’s tales of plucky pups and golden geese, brave rabbits and one very hardworking sheep-pig. These are unforgettable stories for animal lovers of all ages.
The broadcaster turned children's author reveals her favourite fictional character, her love of Black Beauty and what inspired her to start writing for a younger audience.
