AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'One winter's day my dad and I
Went down to see the carousel.
We stood and watched as round and round
The little horses rose and fell.

'So begins the magical journey of a small girl and a wooden horse. A journey of music and mirrors, of green hills and sunlit skies, of wishes and freedom. From this much-loved author and brilliant new illustrator comes a glowing, timeless picture book that celebrates the enduring wonder of the carousel.' (From the publisher's website.)
