In the tick-tock quiet, a shaft of moonlight tickles the nose of something sleeping. It's a stuffed, stripy horse. He twitches. Then an enormous dusty sneeze echoes round the room. He's awake. So begins this charming story, all about a forgotten toy who can't remember his name. He is befriended by Muriel (a hummingbird who flutters off the pattern on a lamp), Hermann (a daft draught excluder), and Wedgie and Woodie (penguin-shaped salt and pepper shakers), and embarks on an adventure to meet Ming, a wise and ancient Chinese vase cat, who is the only person in the shop who might be able to tell him who he is. Thrills, spills, and some seriously silly situations await him on his adventure.

There is nothing new about using left/abandoned toys as the basis for this kind of book, but the stripy horse is lovable and cuddly enough to carry the whole thing, and the supporting charactors are nicely drawn and help leave an impression.
Since buying this we have had to buy my son a Stripy horse Plush toy (which he also loves)
A definate addition to any bedtime story collection.
