Continuing the adventures of young heroine Charlie Bass and her funny family of humans and animals, The Racehorse Who Disappeared is the follow up novel to Clare Balding’s bestselling children’s debut, The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop. Life is slowly getting back to normal for Charlie after her reluctant racehorse, Noble Warrior, won the Derby and saved her family from financial ruin. But drama soon returns to Folly Farm when thieves break into the farmyard in the dead of night and kidnap Noble Warrior. With the police baffled and no trace of the prizewinning thoroughbred to be found, Charlie launches her own investigation. The Racehorse Who Disappeared is another aspirational story about overcoming adversity and following your dreams written in the tradition of classic animal stories such as Gerald Durrell’s My Family and Other Animals and Dick King-Smith’s The Sheep Pig but with a thoroughly modern twist and a fantastic, can-do heroine. Praise for The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop by Clare Balding ‘A heart-warming story with a great girl-power message’ Jacqueline Wilson ‘A cheerful paean to books, big thighs and working hard to realise your dreams’ - The Guardian ‘Funny and touching’ The Telegraph ‘Will inspire girls to aim high. Uplifting and funny.’ Daily Express
