The Lost Horse

Mark Nicholas

Tate Publishing

When the sculpture of a horse disappears from the gallery, everyone is panicked! The police start a countrywide search – where could he be? Has he been stolen? Did he run away?

In a village outside the city, young Lyra dreams of having a friend of her very own. So when she hears a knocking at her window and sees the face of a horse peering through the glass, she cannot believe her luck!

Their friendship blossoms as Lyra and the horse spend a wonderful few days together, playing games and picking flowers in the garden. But then, a figure arrives to take the horse home – back to where he belongs. And before she knows it, Lyra is whisked off on an unexpected adventure.

This inspiring picture book is a celebration of friendship and reminds us all that the power of dreaming means we’ll never be alone for long!
