    DescriptionThe most famous and loved racing story of all time. National Velvet is a classic tale of dreams, ambition and one girl's belief in a horse. 'Velvet'll sit on a horse like a shadow and breathe her soul into it ...I never seen such a creature on a horse.' Velvet is mad about horses. When she wins a piebald horse in a raffle, she knows he's something special. His heart is as big as the five-foot fences he jumps, and he'll do anything for Velvet. Soon, she and her friend Mi have their sights set on the biggest race in England. But can a girl win the Grand National? The book that inspired the classic film starring Elizabeth Taylor, National Velvet is a true classic of print and screen. Alongside Black Beauty and My Friend Flicka it is one of the great horse books for children.

    Classic Little Miss Sunshine Equivalent5

    Lyndel Hadley This book is a classic, but not one like what it is made out to be. It is more like an old-fashioned quivalent of the modern Little Miss Sunshine film than anything else. It is full of surprises, delights, little laughs and sighs. I adore it with every fibre of my being. It's so real - like looking in on a fully-disfunctional family through the bathroom window. Honest and unafraid. An real experience. It's like a movie on paper - beautifully flowing and real. by Lyndel Hadley
