Colin the Cart Horse

Publisher: Faber & Faber

Review

Colin the carthorse has lived a happy, if predictable, life on the same farm for many years. He works hard, eats plenty of tasty hay and turns it into the very best manure which can be spread on the fields and produce the most delicious crops.

When Colin's curiosity sends him around the farm to see what the other animals are eating, he is fascinated and decides to be a bit more adventurous with his own diet. Involving gas masks, the army, a helicopter and the mayor declaring a state of emergency, the result of Colin's experiment is unbelievably smelly and leads to very unfortunate, but hilarious, consequences.

This deliciously lavatorial rhyming story is presented in a small format for little hands and complemented by appealing and amusing illustrations. Perfect for building reading confidence.
