Or will it end in utter disaster?
A comic tale for ages 4+
It is the middle of July and the summer sun is beating gloriously down on the English countryside. But in Finbar’s Field, things are far from rosy. Norbert, the fat old cart horse is more depressed than ever because Colin the Cuckoo, his only friend in the world, is preparing to fly off for the holiday of a lifetime on the French Riviera, leaving him behind!
The badgers who reside underneath the hedge are no company due to their nocturnal habits, and Delilah, the pretty pony who lives in the next field is continuing to ignore him.
But when Colin’s holiday plans go horribly wrong, only Norbert can save the day!
Will he manage to transform their field into a passable imitation of the French Riviera without incurring the wrath of Farmer Finbar? And will he win Delilah’s affections in the process?
The SECOND book in the Norbert the Horse series!
Norbert leads a happy life in Farmer Finbar’s field, spending his days munching away on the long green grass and chatting with his friends Colin the Cuckoo and Delilah, the pretty pony who lives in the next field. Alas, peace and tranquillity never last for long when Norbert is about!
One morning, on a routine flight over Finbar’s farmhouse, Colin spots a birdcage in the kitchen window containing a small, green budgerigar named George. Convinced that Norbert’s owner is holding the poor little bird prisoner, he rushes back to tell Norbert of his terrible discovery; little does he know that that Finbar is merely looking after the budgie overnight as a favour to his neighbour, Mrs Muckleton, and that George is perfectly happy in his cage with his swing, his millet and his mirror.
Urged on by Norbert and Delilah, the cowardly cuckoo embarks on a daring mission to free the bird, one which will lead him deep into the heart of darkness that is Finbar’s farmhouse. When it all goes horribly wrong, only Norbert, the daftest horse in the whole world, can come to the rescue!
