Running with the Horses: young readers’ edition
Nina lives with her father above the palace stables at the Royal Academy of Dancing Horses. She loves watching the famous white stallions as they parade for the crowds, but her favourite horse is an ordinary mare called Zelda – an old cab horse Nina often pats on her way home from school.
When Nina’s world changes dramatically, she and her father have to flee from the city. Their journey over the mountains with Zelda and the stallions seems impossible, with danger at every turn . . . From one of Australia’s most-loved children’s book creators comes this classic story of adventure that will be treasured by young readers everywhere. Now published as a beautifully presented full colour hardback chapter book with illustrations throughout for young readers, celebrating the story’s tenth anniversary.
