Emma loves to visit Grandma Dolly and her animal sanctuary in the summer holidays.
At home, Emma isn’t even allowed a guinea pig. During one of Emma's visits, her grandmother is asked to take in Mississippi, the beloved horse of her friend, wealthy Mr Clipperbush, who has passed away.
Emma can’t believe her luck when Grandma then gives her Mississippi – a horse of her own. But soon, there’s trouble. Mr Clipperbush’s long-lost nephew wants the horse back – and will stop at nothing to get his way. What can Emma do? Saving Mississippi means everything.
Jam-packed with quirky animals, resourceful children and all the trademark wit and warmth of bestselling author Cornelia Funke, SAVING MISSISSIPPI is a big-hearted, summertime animal adventure for ages 8+
As Emma got off the bus, she closed her eyes and took a deep breath. Oh yes! This was how it ought to smell. Of manure, petrol and damp earth. Of summer holidays with Dolly.
