The beautiful valley of Moonacre is shadowed by the memory of the Moon Princess and the mysterious little white horse. When orphaned Maria Merryweather comes there to stay, she finds herself involved with an ancient feud. She is determined to restore peace and happiness to the whole of Moonacre Valley. And Maria usually gets her own way...This edition of The Little White Horse - winner of the Carnegie Medal in 1946 and since cited by J.K. Rowling as her childhood favourite - is designed as a nostalgic reminder of the original edition with a classic hardback binding, plus the original line drawings and colour plate.
