WellRead Kids May Selection: Arno and His Horse by Jane Godwin, illustrated by Felicita Sala
"Arno had a horse, it was brown and it was black. He took it with him everywhere, but did he bring it back?"
Arno can't find his precious horse that his grandpa carved for him. All the kids in his town help him look for it. They live in the outback so they have to travel through the bush, along rivers and past ghost gums in search of it. Do you think they can find Arno's horse?
Told in Jane Godwin's evocative rhyming text and matched with Felicita Sala's magical illustrations, this poignant story is about memory, dreams, and the mysterious ways we feel connected to those we love. We adore it!
