Running with the Horses is a stunning picture book by Alison Lester, the much-loved creator of Are We There Yet? and many other treasured books for children. Young readers will love this beautifully illustrated classic story of adventure and friendship.

TEN-YEAR-OLD NINA lives with her father above the palace stables at the Royal Academy of Dancing Horses.  She loves watching the famous white stallions as they parade for the crowds, but her favourite horse is an ordinary mare called Zelda - an old cab horse Nina often pats on her way home from school.

When Nina's world changes dramatically, she and her father have to flee from the city.  Their journey over the mountains with Zelda and the stallions seems impossible, with danger at every turn . . .
