Horace is a very big horse with an even bigger heart. Every day he pulls the baker's cart and helps Old William, Big Bill and Young Billy take bread, buns and other doughy delights to all the people in the town. But when a terrible flu makes everyone sick, who is going to deliver the bread to hungry families?

Written by Jackie French and based on a true story told to her by her grandmother, Horace the Baker's Horse captures a time when horses were part of everyday life. Set in 1919 during the Spanish influenza epidemic, it tells the story of how, when the baker and his family are struck down by illness, Horace sets off on his well-trodden round to deliver bread to the townsfolk all by himself. Peter Bray's illustrations bring the story to life in vivid detail.
