Arno and His Horse
Jane Godwin and 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?
When Arno loses his precious toy horse, all the kids in town help him to look for it. They look everywhere, but will Arno ever see his horse again?
A touching story about memory, dreams, and the mysterious ways we feel connected to those we love.
‘Wide landscapes help to illustrate happy days past and present in this story about the sweetness of remembrance’
‘Besides offering an Australian setting and suggesting the boy's powerful connection with his grandfather, the book communicates a strong sense that something magical has happened … [T]he inviting artwork … uses repeated lines and forms to echo the rhythm of the verse text.’
