    Awesome story! Bought this after attending a talk by the author, Mr. O'Neill, yesterday - books arrived today! My 4yo daughter absolutely loves it, have read it 3x in a row. We chatted about the gypsy lifestyle and culture a bit - predictably, she now wants to go travelling with her pop up tent!

    Beautiful story, the children in our school love Richard and his stories. Visits to school by him are a huge success!

    Beautiful story about a young boy Yokki and his Roma family who try to make a living even though hardship comes. Yokki tells tales of a magic white horse who will come to take them away, and then one night it happens and they fly to a new and better land. Nicely illustrated and by the same partnership as Ossiri and the Bala Mengro. Good to see stories with Roma families.

    Oh things are so hard for Yokki's family. Everything is changing and getting harder. Thank goodness for Yokki's beautiful imagination providing hope and encouragement to bring the family through difficult times. A really beautiful book, lovely writing and pictures. Young children of all backgrounds will enjoy this book, but Gypsy Traveller children will especially enjoy hearing fantastic stories of their own people's past.

    This is a traditional Romani tale with the aim of inspiring hope and creativity. It's a nice little traditional story, albeit one that my own children are just a tad too little to fully appreciate yet. I think we will be looking at this more next year when we look at different countries and culture. The illustrations are lovely and gentle and have a wonderful feeling to them.

    This book has finally arrived, as the first order was lost in the post. The colours are lovely and I hope my grandson likes the stories as they have a moral to them both.
