A book to read in a day and remember for a lifetime.' - Dame Jacqueline WilsonThe perfect Christmas book for children.

Perfect for fans of Jacqueline Wilson, Cathy Cassidy, Pax and Gill Lewis.
When eleven-year-old Addie goes to stay with a foster-care family on a remote Exmoor farm in the midst of a very cold winter, she is full of hurt, anger and a deep mistrust of everyone around her.
Until one day, when she rescues a tiny wild foal from the moorland snow and Addie discovers that perhaps she's not so alone after all. And as adventure and unexpected friendship blossom, Addie is determined that both of them will know what is to be home again soon . . . Susanna Bailey divides her time between writing, freelance social-work, and lecturing in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University, where she also studied.
Susanna wrote Snow Foal during her time at the same university where she drew much inspiration from her tutor, award-winning David Almond.
Snow Foal has already been shortlisted for the Joan Aitken Future Classics Prize.
