The seventh book I have read in 2014 is: Michael Morpurgo’s The White Horse of Zennor. I have read a few Morpurgo books now, including War Horse, and have enjoyed them. This book is no different. I wasn’t sure I would like this book as it was short – only 150 pages, and consisted of short stories. I don’t usually like short stories, I find them hard to engage with however this was not the case with this book. It is possible that I found these easier because they are children’s stories but whatever the reason, this was a book I really enjoyed. I liked all the stories and how they were linked together at the end. It only took me a day to read this book and I found myself wanting to keep picking the book up. This was a short, fun, good read.
