Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Racehorse Who Learned to Dance written and read by Clare Balding.

Charlie's racehorse has certainly earned the name Noble Warrior: he won the Derby against all odds and bested a bunch of nasty kidnappers. But now Noddy is facing his greatest challenge yet.

Charlie's best friend Polly is still recovering from an accident that left her almost paralysed. But Polly has a real talent with horses - and she and Charlie are determined not to let it go to waste.

Can the two best friends find a way to make Polly's equestrian dreams come true, and forge a new path for the racehorse who wouldn't gallop?

Wonderful story

My granddaughter (aged 7) and I have listened to all three of the stories in this series and have BOTH loved them. Well written. Some lovely and relevant themes. Totally engaging. Truly first class. We really enjoyed the Sophie stories by Dick King-Smith (which I listened to with our sons some 25 years ago), and these Racehorse stories have taken over (in “grown-up’ness”) where Sophie left off. HIGHLY recommended.

Sweet story with a positive message

My 6 year old daughter has loved all the Clare Balding ‘Racehorse’ stories. This one is another lovely story and we both enjoyed listening to it. CB has a clear message to deliver which makes the prose a little clunky at times. However the positive messaging probably outweighs this in the end.
