Phar Lap The Wonder Horse Reviews
Gifted storyteller Jackie Kerin has given us a Phar Lap ballad. The story of the iconic Australian horse is presented in the most entertaining way - with superb rhyming verse and unique collage illustrations by award winning artist Patricia Mullins using 'coloured tissue' and 'a variety of Japanese, Nepalese and Indian papers'. Verse 8: November 1930 - the Melbourne Cup's the race,It's always held on Tuesdays and the horses crack a pace.But the racing world was edgy, with rumours running rife,The papers were reporting there'd been threats to Phar Lap's life!The extensive glossary at the back of the book includes Australian slang, historical facts, racing terms and a who's who of Phar Lap's world.Definitely a book for every bookshelf.
Jackie Kerin is a gifted storyteller whose presentations are loved by children and adults alike. Her book Phar Lap the Wonder Horse was selected as a notable book in the Children’s Book Awards. No one could have paid tribute to this Australian racing icon better than Jackie Kerin.Jackie also came to visit us at Belgrave Library where she was warmly received and her talk was enjoyed by everyone. An absolutely delightful and inspiring lady.Highly recommended.
