A little toy horse is about to change Irina's life forever.
Award-winning classic young fiction, beautifully illustrated.
Bella was real... Dreams don't eat hay and drink water. Dreams don't leave footprints in the snow.
When Irina sees a tatty horse in a junk-shop window, she thinks it looks sad and lonely. Irina is an only child and wants nothing more than to take care of this horse.
Little does she know how special Bella is or that magical journeys lie in wait for them!
"Tender and touching... utterly enchanting" Michael Morpurgo
`A rare find... you need look no further for the perfect storybook for an early reader'
