Hold Your Horses

Hold Your Horses Banner

Maxwell and Skippy had been looking forward to the annual village fete all summer. They were among friends and they knew that no one would stare at them or poke fun at their pointed elven ears. They both were so excited at the thoughts of watching the Donkey Derby, guessing the weight of the cake, counting marbles in a jar and visiting the numerous stalls around the village green. What could be better on a lovely sunny afternoon?

However, things take a turn for the worse when the Donkey Derby becomes cancelled, especially for Father Mosely (their carer) who had a secret passion for horse betting on the sly!

Read “Hold Your Horses” and find out how Maxwell and Skippy saved the day for the whole village. The plot will have you smiling in delight and the dreamy illustrations by Skippy Beresford will delight you.
