Présentation de l'éditeur

A thrilling collection of myths, legends and ghost stories from Britain s best-loved children s author and the man behind War Horse, Michael Morpurgo.

Since the beginning of time, strange and mysterious things have happened here . . . At the furthest edge of Britain, where the sea gently washes over the land and myths brush against reality, lies Zennor. Set in a church town where men become beats and ghosts roam freely, these are haunting and unforgettable tales where magic lies around every corner.

Former Children s Laureate and award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo, again demonstrates why he is considered to be the master story teller with his collection of ghost stories for children, The White Horse of Zennor.

Biographie de l'auteur

ard and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times. He started the charity Farms for City Children in 1976 with his wife, Clare, aimed at relieving the poverty of experience many young children feel in inner city and urban areas. Michael is also a patron of over a dozen other charities. Living in Devon, listening to Mozart and working with children have provided Michael with the ideas and incentive to write his stories. He spends half his life mucking out sheds with the children, feeding sheep or milking cows; the other half he spends dreaming up and writing stories for children. "For me, the greater part of writing is daydreaming, dreaming the dream of my story until it hatches out - the writing down of it I always find hard. But I love finishing it, then holding the book in my hand and sharing my dream with my readers." Michael received an OBE in December 2006 for his services to literature.

Fantastic book 9 mai 2011

This book is such a breath of fresh air. It is a series of short stories set in Cornwall filled with wonderful 'little people' and magical happenings. My daughter, who is 8, loved it.
Magic Meets Morpurgo 17 janvier 2013
Par Litterarum Studiosus - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Comprised of five stories, Michael Morpurgo's "The White Horse of Zennor and Other Stories" is an evocative collection. The real freely mingles with the fantastic in the British churchtown of Zennor. In "The Giant's Necklace," a young girl determined to make the longest cowrie shell necklace finds herself in danger when the tide comes in, while "The White Horse of Zennor" chronicles the story of a down-on-their-luck farming family who experience a magical miracle. "`Gone to Sea'" is the story of William Tregerthen, who was born with a twisted left foot, resulting in endless taunts until he discovers his own unique ability. In "Milk for the Cat," Thomas Barbery takes over Tremedda farm upon his father's death but ignores the instructions to leave out a bowl of milk and a row of potatoes each night for the little folk, with sad consequences. Finally, "Mad Miss Marney" brings all of the stories together as young Kate Trelochie meets a social outcast who possesses a special gift. This mysterious book exudes a fairy-tale-like aura, and despite its somewhat predictable endings, it is an interesting read. The language is written at a young adult level, so children will likely need help with some of the vocabulary.

My 9 year old daughter can't wait for bed-time so that we can jump into on of Michael Morpurgo's worlds. From Casper Prince of Cats, to Butterfly Lion, and everything in-between.

This book, however, has a slightly heavier slant to it. With nostalgic, yet beautifully expressed story-lines, the White Horse of Zennor is a set of short stories that has less of a 'I need to finish the book tonight' and more of a 'I keep on thinking about what I've read last night' quality.

I would not recommend this book as your first road into his world. Not if you're reading it to your child at least.
But seasoned Morpurgo readers (adults and children alike) will experience a fond affinity to this compilation.

It is breath taking!
I like how the author keeps you guessing.
I would recommend this for adults as children wouldn't understand it so well,but you could read it to them as a bed time story for then you ‘re with them when they a question.........
