Book Description

I am the king’s horse. I live in the biggest stall in the Persian royal stables.

King Achashveirosh never comes to visit me. He is a busy man, always planning parties, and wars, and then more parties.

But tonight, something strange is going on. Haman is in the courtyard, waking me up with his racket.

I don’t know what he’s up to, but something tells me I’m not going to like it…
