The Little White Horse

by Lynette H on Jan 23, 2011

A book for the young and the young at heart. Very well written as expected from Elizabeth Goudge. It leads the reader in unexpected directions all through the story, making it hard to put down. It has the traditional happy ending, but again not quite as expected. It is a story for early teens rather than little children, although enjoyable for all ages.


enchanting book

by poeteviemo on Jan 20, 2011

I saw the movie "The Secret of Moonacre" and thought I would like the book that it was based on. Though the movie was good, the book beats it hands down. It is an enchanting story about a young girl who moves to new and strange home. I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good book for children and grandchildren. (and grandmas too)


Exquisite - a delight at any age

by Corgi on Mar 10, 2009

This fanciful tale is cunningly wrought, alive with mysteries that draw one along - but not in any hurry, for every page is so full of appeal, so satisfying, that they must be savored (and it's not a very long book.) The characters are vivid and lovable, the beasts are fabulous, wise, and infinitely dependable - our heroine's safety rests on them. The enchanting valley where they all live, Maria's new home to explore, is painted in clear bright colors. I'm glad to learn that there's a movie - not because I think it's likely to be done justice, but because it''ll lead more readers to this too-little-known treasure


A can't put it down book!

by Chele001 on Apr 3, 2007

I remember reading this as a much younger child and have again recently read it. You can't help loving Maria for all that she has tiny feet, which Maria does admire too much. (I'm just jealous). Her imagination formed a boy called Robin to be her playmate, while lonely in London. Now recently orphaned and on her way to the West Country to stay with her 2nd cousin, she has no idea of the adventures that will come her way, nor of the unlikely friends she will gaiin. One nice thing is that Maria will again meet Robin!
