My favourite book is Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. Having been an avid horse rider for most of my life, I was over the moon when I first discovered this book when I was around ten years old. I remember the excitement of turning the first page and feeling like I was being transported back in time to something quite magical. Black Beauty is a touching story told from the view point of a black horse who recounts the tales of his life. From his simple beginnings as a foal in a meadow through the ups and downs and twists and turns, Black Beauty tells his own story which illustrates the importance of kindness towards animals. I have read this book so many times and I can honestly say that the more I read it, the better it gets!
My favourite book is The Nowhere Emporium by Ross McKenzie. When I first got my hands on it, I read the whole book in one day! The story is about a boy called Daniel who stumbles across a shop that contains magic and wonders beyond belief. However, when the shop's existence is threatened, Daniel and his newfound friends are thrown into a world of danger. With its extraordinary characters and exciting plot, this book keeps you on your toes and is impossible to put down!
