A beautifully produced Nature Storybook about horses by Vivian French with pictures by Kate Greenaway medallist Catherine Rayner.
From much-loved author Vivian French and award-winning illustrator Catherine Rayner comes a charming new Nature Storybook about horses. Hello, Horse! gently introduces young children to Shannon, a friendly chestnut mare, and offers encouragement to children unfamiliar with or a little nervous of these large, beautiful creatures.
The subtext is packed with practical tips, such as the right way to offer an apple, and also covers their behaviour – horses' need for company, for example – and life cycle. Tender words and art combine to create a warm and witty introduction to horses ... from the safety of the page!
- A new addition to the Nature Storybook series, featuring Catherine Rayner's real-life horse Shannon.
- Catherine Rayner is winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal and Booktrust's Best New Illustrator Award. She has a loyal following and a big presence on social media. This is her first book for Walker!
- In 2016, Viv was awarded an MBE for services to literature, literacy, illustration and the arts. In 2018, she received Scottish BookTrust's Oustanding Achievement Award.
