Believing in magic makes dreams come true…

Jackie dreams of having a horse of her own, one that’ll be the fastest on the estate, the fastest in all Ireland and the fastest in the world. Mum dreams of a little cottage in the country for her and Jackie to live in.

What they get is a garden gnome that Jackie finds in a rubbish skip; one she lovingly repairs and paints; a gnome she calls Mr Skip.

And Jackie soon discovers that with Mr Skip, anything is possible.
Praise for Michael Morpurgo:
“Michael Morpurgo writes brilliantly about war and animals, conveying the big emotions without preaching.” – The Guardian

“Champagne quality over a wide range of subjects.” – Daily Telegraph

“There are few children’s writers as compelling as Michael Morpurgo.” – Daily Express

“Morpurgo’s gift is to make this long-ago world of danger and heartbreak accessible without ever patronising his young readers.” – Sunday Mercury

“Morpurgo, as always, is subtle and skillful, and incorporates social and moral issues into his writing without being self-righteous or detracting from the quality of the narrative”
Elizabeth Reilly – British Council

“The former children's laureate has the happy knack of speaking to both child and adult readers.” -The Guardian.
