We don't know his breed, or where he came from, all we really know is his size; small, very small. In fact, if you think of a matchbox and halve it, then halve it again - got that? That's about how big he is. Ever see a horse like that? No? Maybe you're not looking hard enough or... maybe 'Tim the Tiny horse' is a one-off. Perhaps he's the result of global warming or some crazy mutation. We'll probably never know, but for the time being let's just accept the fact that he's here and enjoy his adventures. In his new book of adventures, Tim the Tiny horse has to deal with some big things. He falls in love for the first time with a lady fly who doesn't appreciate him, so he acquires a pet greenfly (called George) to love instead. He has fun being best-man at Fly's wedding, and experiences the joys and horrors of babysitting Fly's new baby. And then he decides to rent out his matchbox stable to a mad ladybird and her chaotic host of ant friends.Tim's pluck and humour will delight children and their parents, in this beautifully illustrated book by family favourite Harry Hill. Praise for Tim the Tiny Horse : 'Blissfully silly...Maverick humour for five-year-olds upwards, and their dads' - Sunday Telegraph . 'Charming' - Daily Mail . 'A quirky and delightful book' - Publishing News . 'The coolest book you can give a young reader this Christmas ...a kind of poetry, every word perfectly judged, full of comic bathos' - The Book Magazine .
