CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE WEEK The Sunday Times the expressiveness and zing of Blake's pictures ... are what really do the magical transporting here The Sunday Times An exciting adventure that will entice and captivate. Probably best read with plenty of yummy frozen goodies to hand, RMH has a beautiful hard jacket but a meltingly soft centre! We Love This Book A quirky, delightful story is magically illustrated by this master artist. Perfect for reading aloud or sharing with a class CBI recommended reads of 2012 a wonderful, magical adventure Parents in Touch 'piece of comic genius for kids' and 'every bit as fun to read for grown-ups as it is for its intended pre-schooler audience.' Bath Life It's such a touching, enjoyable story, filled with imagination and gorgeous illustrations, I have a feeling that you will definitely hear 'AGAIN!' at the end of this one. INIS Magazine Quentin Blake's dreamy images of a little girl who rides a horse made of abandoned ice lolly sticks in Russell Hoban's last opus makes Rosie's Magic Horse my Best Picture Book The Times Russell Hoban's enchanting story sets Quentin Blake's prancing lolly-stick horses galloping across cities and jungles and over oceans and deserts on a quest for pirate gold. The Guardian If you like fantastical adventures, this book is for you. Juno an enchanting book New Statesman This collaboration between a late, great storyteller and a living legend of children's illustration is inspired. The Evening Standard This new picturebook by Quentin Blake uses text by Russell Hoban, who died in 2011. It is about a horse made out of ice-lolly sticks that comes to life and flies, enabling a little girl to bring back pirate treasure to her parents, who are inundated with bills. It combines colloquialisms, made-up words - "unvanned", "stickled", "rehorsed"-- and the poetic: "There was wind, there was rain, there were brown leaves blowing." But the expressiveness and zing of Blake's pictures, with detail of a rainy street, kitchen table, child's bedroom, rooftop party in an exotic city, pirates' knees-up, desert with vultures, jungle with parrots and landscape with pink sunset, are what really do the magical transporting here. -- Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times

A lovely book with engaging pictures and delightful use of language. I love the idea that everyday rubbish is transformed into something magical. My daughter especially loves the pictures of the lolly sticks and the pirates. Highly recommend it.

The illustrations are immediately captivating but also have so much detail in them to ponder. The story is simple but thought provoking. My nearly 5 year old loves then book, both having it read to her but also browsing through it herself.

I was lucky enough to see Quentin Blake's original art work for the cover of this book at a recent exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. Inspired by this, I read the story and loved it. It's beautifully quirky. I think it will appeal to girls and boys alike as pirates feature in the tale. This purchase is a present for young relatives, aged under six years, but I'm planning to have a copy for myself as it makes me smile so much.

another excellent story book by the great team of Hoban & Blake ....this is the strange tale of a young girl,Rosie, who collects old ice lolly sticks and keeps them in an old cigar box...the lolly pop sticks are alive and they all dream of becoming a horse and then one magic night ...they do...and Rosie & Stickerino ( the horse) gallop off on a series of adventures...it`s an odd tale like so many of Russel Hoban`s stories are but it is but it is very enjoyable especially with the brilliant illustrations of Quentin Blake ...

This is a wonderful book. Probably about my seventh copy as I give it to everyone with small children.
Boys enjoy it as much as girls it is not a girly story.
I recommend it to adults and children alike.
