One windy summer day on the beach at St. Ives, an artist makes a sand sculpture of a horse. It takes an entire day, and all the people walking by stop to admire the magnificent creature. But when everyone goes home at the end of the day, the sand horse can hear the white horses of the surf calling to him: "Come with us to Sennen, Land's End, and Longships Light!" and he longs to join them. This poetic and haunting tale is memorably illustrated by Greenaway Medal Winner Michael Foreman.
