Product description

Once in a lifetime, a great racehorse is born, whose name will live on in eternity. Buffoon the foal doesn’t look like much of a racehorse. He’s clumsy, awkward and ugly. No-one thinks there’s any future for him. But Tess senses something special in him, a hunger for success as great as her own. Together, the unloved horse and the stubborn girl will forge a bond that will take them further than anyone could have imagined… An epic horse story by the award-winning author of Flambards.

    Can I just alert parents and advise them NOT to buy this book? With a rating of 9- 12, I expected it to be an innocent , well-written horse story; but honestly I was appalled at some of the content. I understand it has a good author, and is an appealing storyline but I know as a 14- year- old- reader that even children my age shouldn’t be reading it. Girls attacking men with knives, and smoking at twelve?! Please don’t buy it: Go for another more innocent story!

    I absolutely loved this book so when I had finished reading it, it left me wanting more, I really think K. M. Peyton should write a sequel to it or even make it into a trilogy. I think she had some amazing ideas and loved the characters.

    A really AMAZING book for ages 12+ i would recommend, it has lovely theme about a girl, her dream, and her horse. This book teaches horse lovers that you must keep working towards your dream, never give up, and it will happen. I loved the Romance mixed into the lovely book about horses, as i love that kind of theme and it always gets my emotions even more, and a really hard book to put down!
