Nicola Walters | 6 comments The book I am looking for is about a carousel horse that comes to life and rides off the carousel on a magical day in the summer - cannot remember if was described as summer solstice or midsummer eve, but remember that this was described as a special magical day. I recall there being a girl character, but remember little about her except she went on an adventure with this carousel horse.

I read the book as a child, so it was late 80s / early 90s. I feel the book was set in the UK and was aimed at kids under 7/8.

Melody Kemble | 31 comments Is it actually called The Carousel by Liz Rosenberg or perhaps a story in The Kingfisher Book of Horse & Pony Stories, compiled by Jenny Oldfield. The story title is, "A Different Kind of Pony", by Matilda Webb, about rescuing an old worn out carousel pony under a full moon.
