Who are You, Stripy Horse?
Who Are You, Stripy Horse? Is the first magical picture book about a soft toy and his friends by Jim Helmore and Karen Wall. In the tick-tock quiet, a shaft of moonlight tickles the nose of something sleeping. It's a stuffed, stripy horse. He twitches. Then an enormous dusty sneeze echoes round the room. He's awake. So begins this charming story, all about a forgotten toy who can't remember his name. He is befriended by Muriel (a hummingbird who flutters off the pattern on a lamp), Hermann (a daft draught excluder), and Roly and Pitch (penguin-shaped salt and pepper shakers). Together they embark on an adventure to meet Ming, a wise and ancient Chinese vase cat, who is the only person in the shop who might be able to tell him who he is. Thrills, spills, and some seriously silly situations await him on his adventure. One of the most charming picture book characters you'll ever meet, Stripy Horse gets up to all sorts of adventures with his friends. These night-time adventures make Stripy Horse the perfect fit for bedtime stories and children with vivid imaginations. Fans of Winnie-the-Pooh's gentle, whimsical humour will love the innocent adventures of Stripy Horse.
