Hayley the Horse is a beauty!

Her sleek tail was glossy, her black mane perfection.
Her coat shone so bright you could see your reflection.

And when she gets a haircut . . . she is proud to see her locks used to make fine paintbrushes and bows for violins.
But when the famous violinist La Rue comes to town and spots Hayley, he hatches a plan to steal her whole tail.
So Hayley has to be strong - this horse couldn't fail.
There was no way on earth he was taking her tail!
She is going to put on a performance that the Queen will never forget!

Another laugh-out-loud horsey fable from the brilliant Gavin Puckett!

This is a very exciting book to read to children. This came this morning before school and she wanted to read it straight away, she was excited all the way through wondering if Vincent la rue will get Hayley’s tail. The ending is lovely and the pictures are well drawn for children to look at while you tell the story. My daughter can’t wait to read this again after school. I enjoyed this book a lot too.

My child said that she thought this book was funny. It really kept her interest throughout as it was full of lots of goings on and she was hoping that all would turn out in the horses favour. The pictures really added to her understanding of the book. The rhyming throughout the book was great. We will be looking to read this authors other books after reading this book together and thoroughly enjoying it.

Sophie absolutely loves horse. She has been going horse riding since the day after her 3rd birthday. For bed time we absolutely love a children's novel that isn't too emotionally complex for her age but at the same time is long enough for her. This was perfect. We're going to look for more in this collection/by same author. 

I have to admit I wasn't to sure about the ending withh mocking the man and his wig, but Sophie laughed and understood that it was his karma for being mean (although I do prefer to teach to be kind to those who are mean). 

However I absolutely adore the language used, it didn't stop soohies ability to understand one bit and she loved learning some new vocabulary. 
Hayely the horse is funny and unique. The story is over all very good. 

Sophie loved it so much that she asked immediately for it to be read again. Then she fell asleep with her arms wrapped around it. It's going on the top shelf of favourite books ever - if she ever let's go.
