Colin the Cart Horse

Side-splitting horse humour from the master of comic rhyme in the third book in the 'Fables from the Stables' series.

Colin the carthorse has always been happy with a diet of hay. Until he notices that the other animals in the farmyard all seem to have food that looks more interesting than his.

Colin decides to taste everybody else’s tea, not realising that a carthorse’s tummy is a delicate thing.

An explosively funny and delightful tale from a master of rhyming texts.

Gavin Puckett

Gavin Puckett works in schools throughout Wales teaching children of all ages about social issues. He lives in South Wales with his wife and young son. MURRAY THE HORSE was the UK winner of the 2013 Greenhouse Funny Prize. It became the first book in the wonderfully funny ‘Fables from the Stables’ series, which so far consists of MURRAY THE HORSE, HENDRIX THE ROCKING HORSE and COLIN THE CARTHORSE.  Gavin is currently working on some more books for the series, which is no mean feat given that they have to star a horse, work in rhyme and make the reader laugh.  Luckily for everybody Gavin is a dab hand at those crucial things.
