Alina5.0 out of 5 stars delightful and lovely!! Reviewed in the United States on October 2, 2016Verified Purchase found a copy of this in my attic a few years ago, and ended up giving it to a girl I babysat over the summer, so I just had to buy myself a copy.
this book is such a lovely gem! some might say it’s too much, but I just adore all the loving detail and reading this book is like enjoying traditional afternoon tea in a spring garden in full bloom, complete with friends and easy cheerful conversation. thank you so much for this glimpse back into my childhood!
also, the movie partly based on this book, (and aptly renamed The Secret of Moonacre) is also a dreamy lovely thing! the plot has been altered somewhat, but it doesn’t ruin anything, especially since they didn’t take the original name of the book. why doesn’t this happen anymore in modern cinema!! it would make everything so much easier, and help loving fans see it as a different version of their favorite characters and keep it separate from the book!
Deb (Readerbuzz) Nance rated it it was amazing Shelves: adventure, children-s-books, england, fiction, kids-1001, magic, relationships CLM at Staircase Wit said her sentimental favorite childhood book is The Little White Horse, so I found a copy and spent a day reading it.
The Little White Horse is the story of Maria and her governess, Miss Heliotrope, and Maria’s dog, Wiggins, who go to live with Maria’s cousin, Sir Benjamin, after the death of Maria’s father. There are troubles at Maria’s new home, the family estate called Moonacre, and it soon becomes clear that it is up to Maria to fix the problems there.
I loved the way all the little incidents in the story fit together beautifully, like the pieces of a puzzle. The story was lit from within by a sense of enchantment, a feeling of the magical, and the little white horse was central to that feeling. But even the smaller parts of the story—even the initial meeting between Maria and her cousin—had a shimmer of magic to it in the way that the two took to each other on first sight. Maria and Miss Heliotrope were described as ordinary, dull even, and yet as they came to live at Moonacre and came to enjoy their new lives, the two changed to present a beautiful appearance.
I can easily see why this is a beloved story.
