Puffin Virtually Live EventThere will be a Puffin Virtually Live Event on Friday 14th October  2016!

The following text is reproduced from an e-mail message received today from Puffin Virtually Live:

“Join bestselling author Clare Balding for an inspirational Puffin Virtually Live celebrating her first ever children’s’ book – The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop (out 22nd September).

Clare will be talking about the inspiration for the book and sharing her indispensable advice for working as a team, finding your inner champion and writing awesome animal adventures. Also tune in for:

– Get involved with an animal draw-along

– Hear Clare reading live from the book

– Go behind the scenes at a real racehorse stables and meet a jockey

– Get ready for some galloping games!

Suitable for all children in Key Stage Two. Remember to dress to impress – it is Derby Day of course!”(Puffin Virtually Live)


From the Amazon store: “Charlie Bass is a horse-mad ten-year-old who dreams of owning her own pony. So when she accidentally manages to buy a racehorse, Charlie is thrilled.

The horse she buys, Noble Warrior, looks the part: strong, fit and healthy. There’s just one problem – he won’t gallop. In fact, he won’t even leave his stable without his best friend, a naughty palomino pony called Percy.” (Amazon)

This is a new book in the style of Dick King Smith that is sure to be a huge hit with KS2 children. The Puffin site will be adding worksheets and resources to go with it very soon. This should be a fun free event and easily accessible!

Sign up to watch  Clare Balding  in this Puffin Virtually Live Event – 2016 live on Friday 14th October 2016 and submit questions to the author.
