Stump the white horse, bedraggled and forlorn has a stump in the middle of his forehead. It takes Danni to recognise that he is more than just a horse. Amazon link.
Danni is new to this country, he has made it over here, a terrible journey, which he can only remember with pain. His family are left far behind, the ways that he knew are not a part of the world he finds himself in. In the city, there are no wide open spaces to play, no freedom to run and, it seems no places to hide.
Being picked on by the class bullies is not what Danni wants at all. But then he finds Stump or as he re-names this special horse, Moonlight. A friend and a friend in need.
But Danni is just a bit too late….
A wonderful ending with lots of sadness and promise, but you will need to read it to find out.
A great book for children of any age from about 7-11 years.

His friend, Lucy was there but even she wasn’t convinced that Dan was anything but okay when he started to tell her that his clay model could talk.
Being zapped back into the 16th century, going where
danger was beating at the door and finding just how tough he was, could only be the best thing for Dan. Hard as it was!
The adventure, and links with the historical setting of the 16th century make this both an exciting read and a story which lots of children will relate to.
Published by Frances Lincoln the book has a band reading of 9+, but as a story it’s a great read for younger or older children.
It was recently read by 10 and 11 year olds at LeytonStories, in East London,they had some really rave reviews. Jonny was one of three authors, giving workshops and talking about books.
