Treasury of Horses
I received this book free of charge to review from Dorling Kindersley for their website, however, I liked it so much, I thought that I would include my blog review pages.
The first thing to notice about this publication is the binding, it is a hardcover book and in my opinion stunning to look at, with a splash of glitter to make it even more beautiful. It grabbed my attention straight away.
Inside every page is filled with beautiful illustrations and/or photographs. The content covers just about everything you need or want to know about horses. There is a colourful history of the horse, sections about the various uses and work of horses, how to care for your horse and a lovely story about Sea Biscuit – one of the most famous horses of all.
Separating these sections is the different breed information, again with gorgeous pictures and a write-up about the breed, including other similar breeds.
Unlike many of the other similar books on the market, this book isn’t a standard a-z encyclopedia type reference book. The layout makes it much more of story. It is a book that you can sit down and read, it flows well, is interesting, yet still contains all the information you would expect.
The book retails for £14.99 and can be bought direct from Dorling Kindersley here. It is also available as an Adobe eBook, but given the choice, I know that I would want the beautiful hardback.
