REVIEW
I received this book for free in exchange from my honest review and opinion. I gave this book 5 stars and here is why:
The Mysteries of the Magical Horse is a beautifully written children’s tale, full of adventure and historical moments that you would love to go back to relive.

The story follows a young girl named Victoria and her trusted horse Red who can turn into a human boy and travel back and forward in time to relive the history books. This book includes such tales from The English Victorian times in which Victoria and Red have tea with the King and queen themselves. They also travel back to the 1960’s and 1930’s wartime Britain.

This is a brilliant book for kids as it not only fun and magical it is also full of educational values that you might have overlooked in school.

Although this was meant for a child, I was also engrossed in it, especially the 1960’s that’s one of my favourites and I was always wondering what came next for them.

If you have a child, this a great colourful book full of life and learning and I would definitely recommend this to purchase!

OTHER REVIEWS
P J Flynn’s books have had some great reviews, and has
readers in over 20 countries worldwide.
“I want to share with everyone the absolute pleasure my
family and I had reading In “The Land Of The Unicorn” and “Tales of the Wildcat”,
by P J Flynn.
Tales of a wildcat is an amazing and wonderful exploration
taken with Jasper – the wildcat. My grandchildren and I enthusiastically
followed along with Jasper as he roamed about, met new friends and had many new
experiences. If you like cats you will very much enjoy seeing the world through
Jasper’s eyes and after reading it you will never look at your own cat quite
the same again! This book was a fun adventure for all ages, I highly recommend
it.
In The Land Of The Unicorn is a fantastical journey through
historic times and awesome locations. The children loved this book as it
vividly and intelligently touched on many different stories they have heard
about, it opened their minds and thus opened within them a curiosity about
these historic characters and a want to learn even more about them all.  We look forward to enjoying many more
journeys in the future, and secretly hope for an animated feature film, as this
would be a fantastic story to tell on a big screen too! I think this series
would be an excellent addition to schools and libraries for story time or in
any children’s bookshelf to be read over and over again. I have no doubt you
and your children will adore this book as much as we did.
Thank you for the wonderful adventures Peter!! Loretta

 EXCERPT
In the blink of an
eye, Red had appeared in front of me. I got on his back and in a flash we found
ourselves behind a small building in a large park. I looked down and saw myself
wearing a beautiful dress and when I looked at Jack, he was wearing a suit
making him look very handsome! I wondered what the people near this building
were celebrating, so I began looking for clues as to where we were and what age
we had landed ourselves in.
I peered around the
wall and to my amazement saw a gigantic building in front of me with a massive
crystal roof. Families were sitting around outside the building having picnics.
Some were riding horses and elegant ladies were walking their dogs while
children played games with hoops and tennis rackets. The look of excitement on
their faces was overwhelming. Only later on I was to realise these people were
the privileged few.
There was a mighty
cheer from the crowd as an open carriage came into view, then everything was
explained. It was Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. I recognised them as I’d
seen them many times in my history books. The queen looked stunningly
beautiful; she was wearing a diamond necklace and earrings with a bracelet to
match, she looked a million dollars! The prince was also looking very grand in
a mart uniform and three-pointed hat with a beautiful plume. This made me
realise where we were; it was the 1851 Crystal Palace Exhibition. No wonder the
crowds were excited! It was the biggest event Britain had seen for many years.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR 
Until 10 years ago the author, from Northamptonshire,
England, worked as a plasterer but two serious operations gave him the
opportunity to pursue a challenge he never thought possible.
With the help of numerous friends and family members the
dream of writing a book became a reality.
He was encouraged by teachers when he first began writing.
Teaching history suddenly became easier because the children began asking
questions about the events and people they were introduced to through his
books.  As one Head teacher put it,
“They seemed inspired to learn more about history. It was no longer
something they had to put up with. Their thirst for knowledge almost became
unquenchable!”
The author doesn’t just delve into ancient history; his characters
visit the ‘swinging sixties’, The Second World War London, The Roman
occupation, Victorian times, Elizabethan times and historical legends.  He introduces children to the times of their
parents and grandparents as well as stories and events that moulded our
country. His growing army of readers’ constantly write to him asking when
another adventure book will be published and where it will take them.
