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