Clare Balding's second brilliant adventure for Charlie Bass and her funny family of humans and animals.

Life is slowly getting back to normal for Charlie after her reluctant racehorse, Noble Warrior, won the Derby and saved her family from financial ruin. But drama soon returns to Folly Farm when thieves break into the farmyard in the dead of night and kidnap Noble Warrior! 

With the police baffled and no trace of the prizewinning thoroughbred to be found, Charlie launches her own investigation...

Inspired by the real-life kidnapping of Derby-winning racehorse Shergar and by the real incidents of cruel 'chariot racing' in the UK and Ireland this is a thrilling sequel to The Racehorse Who Wouldn't Gallop.
A classic, funny animal story perfect for fans of Dick King-Smith and My Family and Other Animals.
