Horse and ponies of all sorts and types are brought together in this one big, beautiful book for young children. Big Horses, Little Horses, the third title in the Big & Little series, features over 130 horse and pony breeds from around the world, each one illustrated with a colour drawing specially commissioned by leading comic artist and illustrator, Jim Medway.
Divided into sections on British, European, North American, Asian and World horses, every known breed is included: from the English Thoroughbred racehorse to the tiny Shetland Pony, from the enormous Drum Horse to the elegant Arabian. Horses for trotting, horses for climbing mountains, horses for cattle work, horses for jumping, horses for pulling carriages – they are all here.
A delightful feature at the back of the book is a Foal identifier, while a Horse Index includes interesting facts about each breed.
This is a must-have book for all young children and their parents who love horses!
