Hilarious underdog story (about a horse) named Murray.

Murray the horse dreams of winning big races just like the rest of his family, but he has one problem - he's just not that fast! When horse Ned Plumb twists his ankle at the start line, his jockey spots Murray in the crowd and says, Fancy a race? Murray finally gets his chance to shine and beat the neigh-sayers with a rather unusual race technique...

Written in verse, the accessible writing inMurray the Race Horsewill charm boys and girls age 7-11 (and horse-lovers of all ages), and is complemented by Tor Freeman's hilarious illustrations, and has a great message about believing in yourself and following your dreams.

This series is a great step up from picture books - for readers who want to build their confidence, but are not quite ready for chapter books.Not your typical horse book!Gavin Puckettlives in South Wales with his wife, his young son and their cat, George. He spends his days working as a school liaison officer with the police.

Tor Freemanis a Londoner and a freelance illustrator since she graduated from Kingston University with a BA in Illustration in 1999. In 2012 she was awarded a Sendak Fellowship.The fact is, sometimes you'll find dreams do come true and who knows? One day it could happen to you! But remember . . . Your wishes, no matter how grand . . . Might not end up in the way you had planned!
