I am the Great Horse

by Katherine Roberts

Winner of the Branford Boase Award, Roberts has created an exhilarating gallop of a good read. “I am Bucephalas … I am a stallion trained for war. This is my story”.  From the moment the battle-scarred horse allows a prince and a runaway girl to sit on his back, he is bound to them forever.

The prince is the young Alexander the Great, who he proudly carries into battle, blazing a trail to the edge of the world in his master’s search for glory and adventure.  The girl, Charm, is a stable hand who brushes away the ghosts Bucephalas sees and forgives his arrogant ways. Through the eyes of the horse, history, mystery and adventure unfold.

In paperback at 11 euros.
