Jumping Jack
by Germano Zullo

Roger Trotter and his horse, Jack, are champions. They have enjoyed unrivalled success in the showjumping arena. But one day, Jack  crashes round the course. What could be wrong? Roger tries everything to find out the cause of the problem, but with no success. They have to go back into the arena and surprisingly stumble across the solution.

This is a beautifully bold, colourful, funny and quirky book with a lovely story and delightful illustrations. It's great to find a horsy book for boys, and adults will get just as much pleasure from reading this book as the children.
