Nelson the horse and his friends are excited. Mike is about to go on holiday and they all like that idea - until they find out that they are not included! It is not long before they come up with their own idea for a holiday, of course, provided they can get there and back without Mike knowing... Off our heroes go on a hilarious slapstick holiday to Tenby, full of laugh aloud misadventures which include (among other things) the rescue of a beached whale. The whole book is great fun from start to finish. For 8-10 year olds but could happily be read aloud to Y2 children.
