The Tale of a Dark Horse

It's 127BC and the Emperor Han Wudi is desperate for a horse...but not just any horse! The horse he wants is the life and soul of every party! But just who is that dark and handsome stallion that vanishes as quickly as he appears? Where does he come from? And what is his name? Find out in this tantalizing tale of mystery, history and the fabulous Silk Road! Another funny and fabulous Chinese Calendar Tale due out just in time for the Year of the Horse (2014)! SELLING POINTS: - Funny stories in rhyme by much-loved Hong Kong-based author Sarah Brennan - Hilarious illustrations by Hong Kong's famous cartoonist Harry Harrison - Highlights fabulous Chinese history including the story of the great Han Emperor Wudi and his conquest to the West, the hugely important Silk Road, and the legendary 'heavenly horses' of the Fergana Valley. - Proven track record with primary school children of all ages and cultures - Sells equally well to boys and girls - Perfect for reluctant readers 'Sarah Brennan's work is a meeting between traditional Asian narratives and the universal taste of children for graphic stories.
The tale-telling gifts shown in these books, along with the exuberance of the language and rhymes, make them unique in children's literature'. Tom Keneally, author of Schindler's Ark and Ned Kelly and the City of Bees 'Once again Sarah Brennan and Harry Harrison have brought new life and colour to an ancient Chinese legend...This charmingly haunting (and hauntingly charming) tale will delight readers of all ages.' John Carroll, Professor of History, University of Hong Kong.
